National Margarita Day

According to this article in The New York Daily News, February 22 is National Margarita Day.  It sounds like another made-up holiday to me, but any excuse is a good excuse to have a Margarita.  Not only is this cocktail one of my favorites, but it’s a national favorite, too. Tequila Herradura (not sure if they’re a totally objective source) claims that the margarita represents 18 percent of all mixed drink sales in the U.S., followed by the Martini, Rum and Coke, and Vodka and Tonic.  The Margarita has an average hourly sale rate of 185,000 – that’s over four million a day!  In a country with over 305 million people, it’s obvious that some people are not pulling their weight.

So get out your limes and blender (or shaker), and have at it.  My recipe is here, and there are plenty more available online.  Try out a new recipe February 22, and tailor it to your own taste.
