National Margarita Day!!! Woo Hoo!!!


Surely many are wondering why a cold, fruity, summery drink such as the margarita is commemorated in February. The dead of winter! For some people, margarita day is more likely to be celebrated if it were June. But for those who live in New York, where the sidewalks are currently covered in dog-soiled snow that, they will understand the sort of resemblance of a foul frozen cocktail,

According to studies, Americans on average drink 185,000 margaritas per hour, making it almost a patriotic duty to imbibe. National Margarita Day might not be a real holiday, considering it’s not on Wikipedia, the decider of all reality. But plenty of people out there were delighted to have an excuse to enjoy an adult beverage after a long day at work.
I think I'll make a pitcher of them today and have a few friends over!!
Tell me, what's your favorite Margarita? Mine is the classic original with Patron tequila!!
Happy Day
Linda

I like my margaritas to be classic - no strawberries or peaches in mine, thank you.

Classic over the rocks with a salted rim and a plate of nachos. ;-)

I can't believe I missed out on Margarita Day! Oh, well, I'll have one anyway, on the rocks with a salt rim.

I totally agree!! Classic...although I have a friend who makes the most delicious mango margaritas from fresh mangos.

But for the classic...Top Shelf Patron tequila and Contreau is the only way to go!!

I made mexican food and fresh margartas that night and put on salsa music! Ole!!
