NEW YORK (77 WABC) – Do you prefer your margs with a salt or sugar rim? Well enjoy both because today, February 22, is National Margarita Day.
Legend has it that margaritas were created in Mexico by a bartender in 1938, but there are multiple theories out there.
Nevertheless, I think everyone can agree that margaritas are delicious. So with that said, how are going to celebrate the boozy day?
Here are some options:
If you want to make a classic on the rocks margarita, you only need three basic ingredients: tequila, fresh lime juice, and orange liqueur. I am going to use Don Julio Blanco Tequila and Cointreau for my liqueur, but you can use whatever suits your fancy! Obviously fresh lime juice is the best option, but I am lazy and it’s a Monday, so I plan on making mine with pre-packaged lime juice. Not as great, but it does the job. And if you’re feeling extra fancy, add some salt on the rim of your glass and add a wedge of lime.
National Margarita Day was founded by Todd McCalla to “celebrate Margaritas, plain and simple.”
