Ah, I love holidays - especially when they're food-related.

Today, Monday, Oct. 4, is National Taco Day.

Simply put, tacos are incredible.

I love how tacos make for the perfect snack, but also make for the perfect meal - depending on how many you eat; I love the variety of tacos - chicken, carne asada, carnitas, barbacoa, the list goes on; I also love how cheap tacos are.

I. love. tacos.

Any avid taco lover (like myself) will tell you, though - where there are tacos, there is also tequila.

Let's be honest - what would a good taco be without a good margarita to wash it down with?

Smithsonian Magazine says we can thank Carlos "Danny" Herrera for this wonderful beverage. Legend says he created the cocktail in 1938 at his Tijuana restaurant Rancho La Gloria. The drink was developed for a customer allergic to most alcohols other than tequila.

A classic margarita is typically served with a salted-rimmed glass featuring tequila, lime juice and Cointreau or Triple Sec. That way, you get the wonder fiesta in your mouth of sweet, sour, salty and bitter.

Lucky for us all, Northern Colorado has tons of places to grab a good marg.

Celebrate National Taco Day accordingly - and pair your tacos with a deliciously refreshing margarita at one of these Northern Colorado restaurants:
