Today is National Margarita Day (it should really be a whole week) and in celebration, Spice Market's signature Ginger Margarita will be half price! Grab your friends and split a $24 pitcher and pair it with tasty bites such as spiced chicken samosas or peekytoe crab dumplings.
Fret not if you can't make it out of the house (or worse, the office!)! Spice Market is generously sharing with you its sumptuous recipe for their ginger marg.
Just when returning to work after the (hopefully) eventful 3-day weekend (that you probably haven't fully recovered from yet) seems unbearable, National Margarita Day comes to ease your pain. If you can't make a mid-day escape (hey, it's 5 o'clock somewhere right?) you can head straight from the office to unwind with something tall and strong at one of the following spots, reknown for their delicious 'ritas. It won't matter if you're normally not a tequila fan - you won't even taste it.
Along with three varieties each of the well-known bar staples, Cuervo, Sauza, and Patrón, the West Village's Caliente Cab Co. also serves up lesser-known-but-equally-scrumptious tequilas like Mezcal (named for the Mezcal worm in the bottom), the handmade El Tesoro, Cabo Wabo, and others. Their specialty 24-ounce margarita may seem steep (at $14 blended, $16 on the rocks), but they're entirely worth it. The bartenders somehow manage to mix a considerable amount of tequila with a couple splashes of juice to concoct the perfect balance of sweet and sour - and you get to keep the glass as a souvenir.
