Celebrating National Margarita Day

Dan This Land of Ours

margarita dayAfter a hard day at work, Cathy Isom tells you why you may be inclined to unwind with one of the most common tequila-based cocktails today. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

Had a Margarita lately? You may want to celebrate with one today, because it’s National Margarita Day. The margarita is a cocktail that consists of tequila, triple sec, and lime or lemon juice. A key ingredient is the freshly squeezed lime juice. Today, lime is not the only flavor of margarita. And, the specialists behind the bar have gotten creative mixing dried herbs, infused sugars, and exotic salts to enhance both the presentation of the glass and the flavor of the cocktail.

Margaritas can be served on the rocks (shaken with ice), frozen (blended with ice), or straight up (without ice).

There are many different stories and myths, beginning as early as 1938, as to how and when the margarita was created. No matter which you enjoy it today, use #NationalMargaritaDay to post on social media.

Remember, always drink responsibly and never drink and drive.
