Cheers, frugal friends! Get the limes and salt ready for National Margarita Day on Monday, February 22. It seems everyone could use a good drink right about now. Even better, when you can raise a glass on the cheap. And the “food holiday” is the perfect time to sit back, relax and sip on some salty savings around town. The iconic adult beverage is made of tequila, triple sec and limes (sometimes lemons), served in a cocktail glass with a salt rim.
