Margarita Day celebrates Margaritas, the cool tropical drinks that combine tequila, triple sec, and lime, often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The original margarita was not frozen and was invented sometime during the 1930s or 40s in Mexico, though there are many different origin stories. Freezing it was an idea that came about decades later. The margarita has been popular in the United States for about 60 years and it remains a favorite to this day.
