National Margarita Day is around the corner on February 22, so it’s time to start mixing up your best recipes. While you can’t go wrong with a traditional margarita, we think National Margarita Day is the perfect occasion to try new margarita recipes.

Gran Centenario Plata is blended in oak to achieve a subtle wood note and an incredibly smooth taste that is unusual for a white tequila. The Plata contains fruit-forward notes of pear, lime, and citrus with a touch of black pepper.
