National Margarita Day

National Margarita Day

Although it may seem impossible, there is a drink that captures the essence of joviality. It is the patron saint of fun and joyous expressions of life at its best. The Margarita is that drink!

A pitcher of this refreshing refreshment is the perfect way to cool off on a hot day.

Be careful! Tequila can cause you to t’kill’ya if consumed in excess. It’s important to know your limits.

There are many virgin margarita drinks that can be enjoyed with less risk. They have the same limey-orangey flavor as alcohol but don’t contain any alcohol. This is a great option for people who have to work on National Margarita Day, but still want to celebrate with a cocktail or mock-tail at lunch.

National Margarita Day celebrates this marvelously-delicious drink, and the rainbow of colors and flavors it comes in. It may seem like a simple drink of ice cold Tequila, Triple Sec, salt, and a wedge lime. But this beverage is much more than its parts.

You can find a version for just about any occasion. You can choose from the more flavorful Strawberry Sriracha Margarita or the Roasted Blueberry Basil Margarita. National Margarita Day offers many options, including Smoked Mangonada and Spicy Grilled Pineapple.

National Margarita Day was established by Nationalmargaritaday.com to help celebrate this amazing alcoholic beverage.

Margarita’s history is complex and varied. There are many stories about its origin. One story says that it was created at Rancho La Gloria in Tijuana by Carlos Herrera, who made the recipe for Marjorie King. King was a Ziegfield dancer with a severe allergy to spirits.

Another legend states that it was invented by Santos Cruz in Galveston Texas for his favorite patron, Patty Lee. These are just two stories about this wonderful invention. No one knows for sure which one is true. They could all be true!

How can we celebrate National Margarita Day? To kick off the trip to Margaritaville, you might have a large pitcher of Margaritas. (We knew it was coming. We couldn’t possibly write an article about margaritas and not mention that song.

These are some fun ways you can pay tribute to this famous beverage:

Mixing up a pitcher of a different version of the classic drink is a great way to celebrate. Take, for example, the Roasted Blueberry Basil version. It’s pure heaven in a glass

2 Oz Grand Marnier 1 1/2 oz Tequila 2 oz Lime Juice 2 1/2 oz Blueberry Basil Simple Syrup (Wait for it!) With Salt and Sugar on The Rim, Slice Lime, Fresh Blueberries, Basil Leaves

These are the ingredients. Now, let’s make the syrup!

Sprinkle a cup of blueberries on a baking sheet at 400F. After 15-20 minutes, when the berries begin to split in the oven, keep an eye on them. Then, take them out. Combine 1/2c sugar and 1/2c water in small saucepan. Add 6-8 basil leaves. Boil it until the sugar dissolves. Then, mix the mixture with the roasted blueberries until it is well combined. You can either leave the blueberry chunks in or strain them through a strainer depending on your preference. Mix as usual and enjoy the delicious, refreshing flavor.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel like going to bars and restaurants that host National Margarita Day events. You can always host your own event!

Invite friends to a Margarita Blend-Off after-work party on Friday night. It’s a sort of bake-off, but it’s all about creating the perfect ‘Rita. Different participants will be responsible for bringing the basic ingredients (tequila and triple sec) to each other. Blenders will be needed for frozen margaritas.

To determine who makes the best margarita, you can choose two or three mixologists. They can also bring in their own exotic ingredients. Everybody can vote for the winner of the drink.

This type of party is great because everyone wins, and Margaritas can be enjoyed by all!

Even a party that revolves entirely around this delicious drink needs some food to balance it all. Margaritas are typically served with southern-of-the border tastes like churros and taquitos.

To really get into the spirit, serve Margarita-themed food! It will be difficult to give up certain drink ingredients, but it is totally worth it.

Margarita Pie is a Margarita Pie that’s similar to Key Lime Pie, but with a little more tequila. Some recipes don’t even need to be baked. They can simply be chilled.

Margarita Dip is popular for people who love to add pizzazz and flavor to their fruit. Or pretzels for a sweet and salty twist. This dip can be made in a few minutes with cream cheese, whipped topping and lime. ).

Margarita Grilled Shrimp makes a great appetizer. Marinate shrimp in a garlicky and lime-y, spicy, Tequila-and Triple Sec mixture before grilling to your satisfaction!

Consider adding lime-green or yellow themes to your wardrobe in celebration of this holiday occasion! Some prefer to have their nails done in a shiny lime green while others prefer to wear a pale green tie with the shirt and trousers.

The Spanish word margarita actually means “daisy” so incorporating daisies in the decor or clothing of the day would be a great addition to the celebrations.

Simple ingredients such as lime, triple sec, tequila and salt can bring so much joy and delight. National Margarita Day is celebrated in many ways. It can be celebrated with creative recipes, a party or simply a nod to your personal style.
