We see a good number of lesser-known holidays in February (National Baked Alaska Day, Homemade Soup Day and Gumdrop Day), but of all the reasons to raise a glass this month, today's National Margarita Day gives thirsty imbibers the most cause to celebrate. Eager to do your part in toasting the occasion? These three recipes hit the spot whether it’s a national holiday or not.

Comprised of just three simple ingredients, there’s no need to buy Margarita mix ever again once you get down this classic formula of tequila, fresh lime juice and orange liqueur. Click here for the recipe.

Homemade serrano syrup adds a sweet heat to this peppery twist on the Margarita. Click here for the recipe.

Coincidentally enough, February is also National Grapefruit Month! Thankfully this batch of zesty ‘Ritas does double duty to cover both occasions. Click here for the recipe.
