About National Margarita Day
When is National Margarita Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 22
National Margarita Day is today, a February 22 holiday. This very special day falls smack dab in the middle of winter. Many people think of Margaritas as a summer cooler. You can enjoy them any time of the year. So, selecting a date in February for this holiday is appropriate. They are made frozen or unfrozen. Although most people say frozen Margaritas are the best. There are all kinds of flavors, from strawberry and peach to mango and berry, and much more. Almost any fruit you can imagine can be used to make the perfect Mexican Margarita.
Margaritas are comprised of tequila, citrus or other fruits, and sugar. It is the most popular alcoholic beverage that uses Tequila. Margaritas are poured over ice or can be put through a blender to make frozen margaritas.
Historically, Margaritas have been around since the 1930s and 1940s. The actual origin and creator are unknown. Frozen Margaritas came onto the scene in the 1970s.
Todd McCalla, the creator of this day, started it to “celebrate Margaritas, plain and simple”. I don’t know about you. But that’s certainly good enough for me.
So, lift your glass and celebrate National Margarita Day.

History and Origin of National Margarita Day
Todd McCalla is the creator of this special day. According to Todd, the goal of National Margarita Day is to “spread his love for Margaritas around the world.”
This is not a true “National” day. Neither the U.S. Congress nor the President of the United States has proclaimed today National Margarita Day. It is possible that this “National” tag is Mexican in origin. Or perhaps McCalla just wanted to include “National” in the title.
