Shouldn't the most popular cocktail ordered by the pitcher-full have its' own day? Of course! Celebrate Margarita Day by mixing up a tasty pitcher-full -or two-of these delicious cocktails and you'll see why we dedicate a day to the margarita. Although I drink them all year round and muddle in whatever is in season, from strawberries to mango, sage and mint, and if I just have a lime, so be it.
When you split it apart on the surface, cocktail doesn't sound like anything befitting of this column. When you dig deeper, however, cocktail, like most words, has a savory, if unconfirmed, evolution. It's also the only drink that has it's own hour of the day. You don't invite people out for "Beer Hour" or "Milk Hour."
