Today (Sunday July 24, 2016) is Tequila Day.

“Mexicans like to celebrate Tequila Day, and so do lots of others! But let’s face it, we all know tequila is synonymous with margarita, so let’s take a look at this frozen favorite.

There is no definitive answer as to who really invented this drink, but interesting stories abound. One of the earliest stories tells of a wealthy Dallas socialite inventing the drink at a Christmas party in Acapulco in 1948. Tommy Hilton of the Hilton Hotel chain reportedly attended the party, and took the recipe home to serve at his hotels. Another suggests that it is merely based on an American drink called the Daisy, which was made with brandy instead of tequila. The Spanish word for “Daisy” is “Margarita”; hence the name.

In any case, this popular drink, made with tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice, plus the trademark salt rim, will bring a touch of the tropics to any get-together.
Cheers! (And don’t lose that shaker of salt!) ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/ltbew
