At Now Resorts & Spas, we’ll take any reason to party and serve some good cocktails to our guests. But today is a holiday that is very near and dear to our hearts…. February 22, 2011 is National Margarita Day! In honor of this fun holiday, we thought we’d share some fun facts about this delicious cocktail that is considered a staple in the bars at our resorts.
- The Margarita was invited by a socialite named Margarita in 1948 during a cliffside party in Acapulco.
- The Margarita is the most popular drink in the US, representing 18 percent of mixed drink sales.
- On average, Americans consume 185,000 Margaritas per hour.
- The first frozen Margarita machine was invented in 1971 and it was based off a soft-serve ice cream machine.
We hope you’ll be visiting Now Resorts & Spas soon so you can enjoy one of our delicious Margaritas! But if you’d like to create the perfect Margarita at home, check out this blog post with our secret recipe. Happy Margarita Day!
Would love to be there to celebrate today, or any day!! We had the most fantastic vacation back in October, and hope to get back to Now Jade at some point, but for now, we’re shooting for Oct. 2013 to celebrate my 50th birthday! If we can get there sooner, you better believe we’ll be there!!!
LOVE a good RITA! And had some great ones in September when I visited both NOWS! NOW Jade and NOW Sapphire Rocked my RITA WORLD!
