National Margarita Day – February 22nd
Jimmy Buffet probably did more than any other person in history to promote the Margarita. This drink can be served on the rocks, frozen or straight up. It may have been first served in 1938 but there is a definite reference to the drink in a 1953 Esquire Magazine.
It is made with 1 ounce of Tequila, a dash of triple sec and the juice of ½ lemon or lime. And don’t forget the salt! Lime makes the drink a little more sassy, lemon a little softer.
How to celebrate – Have a Margarita! Make your own Margarita with some different added flavors. Listen to Jimmy Buffet.
