Today (2/22) is National Margarita Day, but Delco fam, you’ll want to bookmark this list to have on hand no matter what day of the year it is.

The margarita is a beloved cocktail. Jimmy Buffett built an empire dedicated to this drink. The citrusy beverage can inspire fun in the sun, and after you have more than one, things can escalate quickly (“Give me one margarita…”). It can be made in an infinite number of varieties and flavors: salt or sugar rim, frozen or on the rocks, spicy or fruity or tangy or sweet.

We’re lucky in the Philadelphia region to have a lot of authentic Mexican spots to eat and drink at. Today, we’re showcasing where you can go in Delaware County for a dose of lime. We picked a few spots in Deee-eeeel-coooo for you to hit at happy hour for some tequila time.

They’re listed in alphabetical order below. Let us know on Instagram and Twitter if you have a favorite margarita spot. Don’t forget to check back when you celebrate Cinco de Mayo (5/5) and National Tequila Day (7/24).

If you want to make your own at home (bonus: no designated driver required!) here’s a recipe for a classic margarita that you can whip up in your kitchen, poolside, or wherever else you want to bring the party.

2 ounces of tequila (or more if it’s the weekend)
1/2 ounce of triple sec or Cointreau
1 ounce of lime juice (fresh squeezed is best!)
1/2 ounce of agave syrup (adjust to taste)
Optional Flavors to mix in: 1 ounce of grapefruit juice, strawberry preserves, pomegranate juice or mango puree
Optional Garnish: lime wheel, kosher salt

Make your margarita: Add all of the liquid ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice, and shake it all up until it’s well-chilled. Strain your drink into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and kosher salt on the rim of your glass. Feel free to use sugar instead of salt, or leave your rim bare!
