National Margarita Day

Ok, I am starting to see a patten emerge here...................Now that we have made it through National Wine day on Friday we have National Margarita Day to celebrate today.  I cannot think of any beneficial reasons to have a Margarita, but then again who needs one?  So if you are interested in celebrating here is a little more information for this grand day!

Hey tequila lovers -- it's National Margarita Day! There are dozens of people who claim to be the creators of the first margarita drink. One of whom is a bartender named Willie from Mexico City. He says that in 1934 he concocted the drink for his friend, Marguerite Hemery (whom he named the drink after).

Salvador Negrete is another man who claims to be the inventor of margaritas. The day before his brother's marriage in 1936, Salvador presented the margarita cocktail as a wedding present to Margarita (his sister-in-law). There are various other stories of the drinks invention, but the true identity of the tequila master remains unknown.

To celebrate National Margarita Day, invite some friends over to make your own margarita bar. Set up a potluck for each person to bring ice, tequila, and different margarita flavors. Don't forget the limes!    Punchbowl
