Happy National Margarita Day! Happy Friday, happy Everything to everyone and just everything… A day that the sun is shining here in Margaritaville all over the place even out there in the Midwest where the snow plows have braved the snows and managed to even move snow to now block in folks by moving that snow to barricade driveways in KS I hear. We can only hope they have the mixing s for Margaritas and Jimmy Buffett music ready to go on the speakers as they try to stay warm and visualize the beach and flip flops over the weekend. And who was it that “declared this? I’m thinkin it was a liquor lovin, cocktail lovin someone somewhere life enjoyin someone somewhere and who am I to queston it! Let’s just roll with it, those who like it with tequila, or with just the tart taste and no booze, have at it, call it a MARGARITA and have a grand time!
Here’s what they say about Margaritas and this day dedicated to that great drink whether frozen or on the rocks or served in cute little glasses or poured from a pitcher! “ The margarita cocktail—a famous concoction of tequila, Cointreau or Triple Sec, and lime juice—has been around since the 1940s. Every bartender in the world has put a unique spin on this classic, but no one knows who created the original.
“Dozens of people claim that they invented the margarita, including a bartender named Willie from Mexico City. He said that in 1934 he created and named the drink for his friend Marguerite Hemery. Another popular legend is that Carlos “Danny” Herrera developed the drink at his restaurant in Tijuana in 1938. He invented it for Marjorie King, a customer who was allergic to all hard alcohol except tequila, and didn’t like its sour taste. Another story is that the Dallas socialite Margarita Sames mixed up the drink in 1948 for a house full of guests. One of them was Tommy Hilton who later added the drink to the bar menu at his hotels.
While the true identity of the tequila master may never be known, the margarita will go down in history as one of the most popular mixed drinks of all time. To celebrate National Margarita Day, invite some friends over and enjoy a pitcher of homemade margaritas!”
So many songs have been sung and written about Margaritas and tequila and the powers of both…
one thing is for sure, tequila will sure make some things happen if one is not careful!
Wishing you a great day on this Margarita day, let the good times roll… and be careful out there if you join in with the Margarita parties!
Tomorrow there will be a party going on in Holiday FL, and bikers will ride for a strong warrior in the battle of her life along with those in cars who will show up to support, to join in community. Some coming in for a weekend by plane to also show support and to help. Many have contributed from businesses, from their talents, and many are volunteering to make this one helluva an event and raise monies to benefit Louise “Wheezie” Duckworth in her battle against Cancer. A woman who has given all to so many now needs others as she fights, as she has NO insurance and she is fighting for herself and her beloved family.
