Excerpt from The New York Daily News -

Get ready to celebrate a holiday you (probably) didn’t know existed: National  Margarita Day.

“America loves margaritas. It’s the number-one-selling cocktail in the  country,” said Kyle Ford, a New York City-based mixologist and brand ambassador  for Cointreau, a brand of triple sec, an orange-flavored liqueur that is an  ingredient in the standard margarita. “There’s a holiday for almost everything,  so how cool is it that there’s one for a cocktail?”

Like most cocktail lore, there are conflicting sources about the origins of  the margarita, but Ford subscribes to one story: The first margarita was created  in 1948 by Margaret “Margarita” Sames, a Dallas Socialite who “had a penchant  for tequila, and loved Cointreau.” During one party at her Acapulco vacation  home - which is said to have lasted two weeks - she served the spirits mixed  with fresh lime juice and garnished the rim of the glass with salt.

Part of the reason the cocktail is such a hit, Ford explains, is that it  follows classic cocktail principals of 2-1-1 (two parts tequila to one part lime  juice and one part Cointreau).

“It’s extremely well balanced. It’s strong, sweet and sour,” he said. “And  that sets you up for an infinite amount of variations.”

And the timing of the holiday? Jenna Fagan, the president of Avion tequila,  thinks that it’s perfect for winter-weary New Yorkers.

“When you’re having a great drink it transports you emotionally,” Fagan said. “A margarita transports us all to summer,sitting on that beach with a margarita  in hand.”
