Not that you need an excuse…but National Margarita Day is February 22 (oddly enough on a Wednesday). And, with our ever-fluctuating weather lately, we could all use some ice cold refreshment.

Many happy hours have kicked off at La Perla, with their crowd pleasing Classic Margarita. Pitchers and rocks glasses topped with lime wedges are presented to tables for self-serve enjoyment, the way you would in your own backyard. “Our classic Margarita is so popular because we simply make it to order with fresh ingredients. No mixes or large batches ever at La Perla,” said owner Imran Khan.

Regino Rojas puts as much love into the drink menu as his mother does in her delicate hand-made tortillas. “The Godfather” contains Casamigos Tequila Blanco, fresh pineapple juice, spicy halo holy salt, fresh squeezed lime juice.

The House Margarita is served on the rocks while the Family Slush is served frozen. Both are equally potent, meaning – you can taste the alcohol. A frosted schooner (large size) or a mug (regular size) are decorated with lime wedges and a tequila soaked sugar cube is perched atop and then set on fire tableside providing a fun pyrotechnic display.
