The United States celebrates National Margarita Day on February 22nd each year.

Surveys show that the margarita is the most popular drink ordered in bars and restaurants around the world. The authentic margarita is mixed from Tequila, sour mix and triple sec (sweetened lime juice and Cointreau or Grand Marnier may also be used). Today, about 60 percent of the margaritas consumed are ordered on the rocks and 40 percent are frozen.
