National Margarita Day makes its appearance this week, and the folks at The Mansion Bar at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek have a recipe you can keep in your back pocket for any future margarita needs.
The recipe follows, but if you want to take your frosty libation celebration to more public places, the Mansion is premiering three new margarita flavors on Feb. 22 — the “Rabbit Margarita,” the “Paleta Magarita,” and the “Blood Orange Margarita.” The bar’s signature Texas Margarita will also be available.
