National Margarita Day 2010: How To Celebrate, Events, Margarita History

Posted: Updated:

National Margarita Day 2010 is being celebrated today, Feb. 22, 2010, across the country.

The salute to the margarita, which the Nashua Telegraph notes is "the most popular tequila-based cocktail in the U.S.," is celebrated annually on Feb. 22.

There are plenty of ways to celebrate National Margarita Day and Wikihow has compiled a list of ideas.

Suggestions include trying different margarita serving methods, experimenting with different ingredient ratios, trying different margarita colors, experimenting with the fruit, and creating a margarita based dessert.

But Wikihow notes you don't even need an actual margarita to enjoy the holiday. You can create mocktail margaritas.

The original margarita was invented in 1948 by socialite Margarita Sames and it was the top mixed drink in 2008, per the Food Channel.

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurants across the country are celebrating the day with margarita specials.

A Margaritaville Facebook page, with more than 21,000 fans, has a widget for the day that you can embed on your website or blog.
