13 Reasons Why You Need A Margarita Like, Right Now

February 22 is National Margarita Day, and if that seems like a random time of year to celebrate margaritas, well, then maybe you shouldn’t have been ignoring them all winter. 🤨

Maybe margaritas are feeling a little taken for granted.

Maybe they would appreciate a little gratitude all year round, not just on Cinco de Mayo, or on hot summer evenings, or during a lazy afternoon by the pool.

(Damn. We really want a margarita now.)

Our point is, you say you love margaritas, huh? Well, now’s your chance to prove it.

In honor of the best tequila-based drink on the planet (🤔), we’ve mixed up a signature concoction of funny memes, unique recipes, and nerdy margarita trivia. We hope you enjoy it.

And if you want to take this party into the real world, most ‘rita-serving restaurants offer some kind of Margarita Day special, so go out and enjoy that.

Or, you can make it a gift-giving occasion (cause why not?) with one of our prank gift boxes for extra margarita love.*

*If you need any more evidence that margaritas deserve their own holiday, check out these Amazon reviews of our margarita-themed prank box. People were very upset it wasn’t real… 

FYI, this list is in no particular order. Kinda how your conversations go when you’ve had one too many margaritas. 🥴 

1. Let’s start with the basics…

Are we all on the same page then? OK, onward.

 

2. Did someone say margarita?

Yes. Yes we did. Try to keep up, ya little pumpkin-pi-haircutted freak. ;)

 

3. For that one friend…

If you don’t know who that “one friend” is, there’s a good chance it’s you.  😬

 

4.  If you’re one of those “Valentine’s Day is a bullsh*t holiday” people

someecards

Yup! So’s this one. But at least there are margaritas involved.

 

5. Fun fact: we could all be drinking Daisies right now.

Did you know the word margarita means ‘daisy’ in Spanish? There’s a prohibition-era cocktail called the Daisy, which is basically a margarita but with whatever old-timey base liquor you want. Some margarita scholars (?) believe that the margarita is just a spin on a tequila daisy. (Margarita scholars may or may not be a thing; we just made it up.)

 

6. Remember that episode of Friends when Ross drinks all the margaritas?

LOL. 🤣

 

7. The nerds from FiveThirtyEight created a margarita algorithm!

They narrowed down all their research into the four “best” recipes, and then got drunk testing them out

 

8. A couple of years ago, when everyone was making petitions about everything, there was a Change.org petition to create a margarita emoji.

It didn’t take. 

But seriously, why isn’t there a margarita emoji? There’s a unicorn emoji, a wizard emoji, and a Ziggy Stardust emoji. There’s a bento box, a maté gourd, and whatever this is 🌚. Maybe 2020 will be our year?

(It’s a new moon. With a face. But you can’t see a new moon, so it shouldn't have a face. The point being, someone made an emoji for a thing that’s literally not even there… but there’s no emoji for a delicious beverage that everyone adores. This is why we can’t have nice things.)

 

9. The best margaritas are made with fresh lime juice, not bottled sour mix.

We don’t have a source for that. We’re just saying.

 

10. The first frozen margarita machine lives at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

It was inspired by the Slurpee machine at 7-Eleven.

 

11. Bacon margarita? Hell yes. Tamarind margarita? Tell me everything. Mimosa margarita? CANCEL ALL MY PLANS.

This Forbes roundup by Aly Walansky features the fanciest, most innovative spins on the classic margarita, found all around the country.

 

12. Margaritas: fancy vs. trashy

 

Craft cocktails are great and all, but nothing beats the classic, trash margarita, whether you’re gulping down the $5 ones at Chili’s or drinking one out of a plastic cup at a surf shack. Check out this video for 3 of our favorite versions.

 

13. Finally, just a reminder that you don’t have to wait for a national holiday to enjoy a margarita.
