Thanksgiving dinner is as heralded as meals get.Unless you don’t like to cook.Or are visiting from out of town.Then Thanksgiving dinner is a bummer, a drag, something you’d prefer not to think about.Ah, but not on the Grand Strand. Don’t forget that southerners are all about hospitality, so when many cities shutter their restaurants on this holiday, we keep doors wide open.

What is it about warm weather that makes us go margarita crazy? Is it the refreshingly tart citrus flavors? That salted rim harkening to the ocean and its sea air? The festive, celebratory feeling that drinking one inspires?Oh, who are we kidding. It’s the tequila.Like many other classic cocktails, margaritas are having a moment.

These concoctions are a fun way to experiment with new flavors, but sometimes the simple elements of lime, sugar, tequila and salt are all we need — and want — in a margarita.... Read More
