Miami’s guide to National Margarita Day

National Margarita Day is February 22nd, and you know we’re not ones to pass up a good excuse to consume tequila. Use our handy-dandy National Margarita Day guide to drink your way around South Florida — responsibly, of course.


1. Gili's Beach Club

If you’re a local and your first or last name is Gili, you’ll might be able to enjoy a free watermelon margarita at Gili’s Beach Club. If you aren’t fortunate enough to boast the namesake, you can still sip on watermelon margaritas, made from scratch using a blend of Patrón Añejo, watermelon, freshly-squeezed lime, and sweet or salted rim (regularly priced at $12).
