Andrea Correale's Lemon Basil Margarita is simple yet extraordinary.

With everything going on at the moment, we could all use a drink—and a good one at that. Thankfully, National Margarita Day is Feb. 22, but we're celebrating early.

As many bars remain closed for COVID-19 safety, it’s time to get creative and learn to make our own cocktails. That’s why we teamed with Celebrity Caterer Andrea Correale of Elegant Affairs Caterers to curate a list of the best Margarita recipes you can make at home for family and friends.

Correale’s motto? Inspiring home cooks to make the ordinary extraordinary using simple ingredients in unexpected ways. From your classic mango peach mix to a bold carrot, ginger and bacon blend, these upscale drinks will make you look and feel like a real mixologist.
