About National Margarita Day
A day to celebrate the sweet, tangy and refreshing margarita. A margarita is a mixture of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice served frozen or over ice.
Margarita means "daisy flower" in Spanish, and it is rumored that the drink was invented in the 1930s when a bartender in Tijuana, Mexico, accidentally put tequila instead of brandy in an American news editor’s Brandy Daisy cocktail.
National Margarita Day has been observed on February 22nd since 2009.Find out more
