But in case weak-well tequila blended with outrageously sweet mixers for $2 isn’t your thing, Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville (Ch. 24) has you covered with tried-and-true takes on everyone’s favorite Mexican cocktail to make at home, as well as party-themed programming all day long on Margarita Day (Feb. 22)!
