And the party is just getting started—National Margarita Day is the kickoff to Viva la ‘Rita, a seven-week celebration that puts margaritas front and center. This year Bahama Breeze is introducing two new drinks—Piña Paradise: a frozen mash-up of a Prickly Pear Margarita and a classic Piña Colada, along with the shareable Mighty Blood Orange Margarita. New island-inspired fare is also joining the menu, including a new spin on sliders with Buttermilk Fried Chicken Jibaritos and a sweet ending in the Coconut Grande dessert.
