They stick to family friendly restaurants, know the signs of an oncoming outburst and won’t hesitate to scoop up their children at first wail.

Looks like it's going to be another tequila sunrise because today is National Margarita Day!
Grab yourself a cold glass of this cocktail, drop in a lime wedge and with a little imagination, you could be on your favorite beach!
A margarita is essentially tequila mixed with orange-flavored liqueur and lime or lemon juice with salt lining the rim of the glass. You can slurp it down shaken with ice, on the rocks, blended with ice into a frozen slushee-esque sipper or straight up.
