Creative Click Media’s Second Annual Margarita Madness

Creative Click Media

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

We’ve seen some big changes at La Casa de Creative Click Media since this time last year, but something has definitely stayed the same: we still love a good party.

A growing team, new awards, and a beautiful lakefront office are all causes for celebration, and there’s no better way to kick off the party than with some Cinco-inspired margaritas.

We shared our favorite margarita recipes last Cinco de Mayo, but why stop there?  This year we’ve doubled our list of margarita faves, and we guarantee you’ll find something that’ll have you saying ¡Arriba! at your next fiesta.
