We pay tribute and honor the margarita on this special day of celebration. We so deeply respect and value its place in our history that we have set aside Feb. 22 of every year as National Margarita Day.
Todd McCalla founded National Margarita Day to spread his love for margaritas around the world.
Loved and consumed by millions, friends and families around the world honor this sacred tequila, triple sec and lime drink every year on February 22.
There is much debate as to the exact individual responsible for inventing the classic margarita, although it was during the 1930’s or 1940’s. Frozen margaritas were invented later in 1970’s when an inventive bartender converted a soft serve ice cream unit into a frozen margarita machine. Whether you prefer a classic margarita on the rocks or frozen, it is the most common tequila based cocktail in the United States today. Hence National Margarita Day!
