Chambord Margarita Macarons

Chambord Margarita Macarons

Chambord Margarita Macarons are a fun way to celebrate National Margarita Day in cookie form. Spiked with tequila and chambord liqueur, these macarons are for grown ups only! 

 

Did you know that every day of the year is some sort of food holiday? Come on, name a food or drink, I guarantee I will find out what day during the year that is dedicated to it.

I’m not exactly sure how a food becomes a holiday but it does and some of them can be a lot of fun.  Take today for instance, it’s National Margarita Day! This holiday even has its own website dedicated to it!  Seeing how much we food bloggers love to craft cocktails and put our cocktail ingredients into savory and sweet nibbles, Heather from girlichef gathered a bunch of us together for a margarita party!
