4 Things to Know for National Margarita Day
Celebrate National Margarita Day with PATRÓN Tequila.
Feb. 11, 2022
Margarita enthusiasts, mark your calendars for February 22. You won’t want to miss this one. The delicious, versatile, and delightful margarita has its own holiday! This annual celebration pays homage to America’s favourite and most popular cocktail. The margarita’s versatility makes it perfect for every occasion, whether getting the party started or kicking back to enjoy a relaxing moment. So, in honour of this much acclaimed cocktail, here’s everything you need to know to celebrate National Margarita Day right.
The American love affair with classic margaritas like Tommy's runs deep. At one time Americans were estimated to consume 185,000 margaritas … per hour. That’s a whole lot of agave. And while popular in the US, margaritas have broad international appeal because tequila, the main spirit in margaritas, pairs well with bold flavours like those popular in Mexican, Thai and Chinese cuisines.
Why is it in February?
Why not? National Margarita Day comes just in time to brighten up those winter months. Margaritas can evoke thoughts of a warmer time and place, or fully embrace the enjoyment of cooler weather. The Watermelon Basil Margarita perfectly fuses the fresh flavours to create a delightfully herbal margarita. For a tropical twist on an old classic, try the Perfect Pineapple Margarita. Or if you are looking to spice things up, try the Honey Ginger Margarita. Warm honey syrup, lime juice and freshly cut ginger mix and mingle to bring you a fiesta of flavour.
So, how do we celebrate?
That’s easy – with a delicious margarita done your way. The PATRÓN Classic Margarita hits all the right notes with PATRÓN SILVER, citrus juice, Citrónge Orange Liqueur, and simple syrup. If you are feeling adventurous try the Spicy Strawberry Margarita or the Cucumber-Coconut Margarita. It blends coconut water, lime and cucumber for a refreshing twist. If you are looking for a classic margarita, try the PATRÓN Perfect Margarita. It’s just the right mix of lime, orange and of course, tequila.
