February 22 is National Margarita Day – Where to Celebrate in the Orlando Area

February 22 is National Margarita Day

Who doesn’t like a nice cold margarita? Whether you like yours frozen or on the rocks, there’s a flavor for just about every taste bud.

Today, February 22, is National Margarita Day, celebrating the drink that was first invented in 1948.

According to legend, a socialite named Margarita Sames created the first margarita at her hacienda in Acapulco, Mexico. She mixed together tequila, Cointreau and fresh lime juice, which today remains the basic recipe for a margarita.

Over 60 years later, the margarita is one of the top 3 cocktails in the U.S., and, according to the Food Network, on average, over 185,000 margaritas are consumed every hour in this country.

Whew! That’s a lot of wasting away in Margaritaville.
