It seems like there's a "day" for everything, but we can't think of a cocktail more deserving of its own day than the margarita. Yep, today is National Margarita Day, according to TODAY.com, which gives us a good excuse to enjoy a cold one our favorite way: classic, on the rocks, with salt.

There's a reason why Jimmy Buffett devoted an entire song to the margarita. The cocktail, consisting of tequila mixed with orange-flavored liqueur and lime or lemon juice, makes any occasion feel like a summer party -- and it's a great way to enjoy tequila without downing nasty shots. Some people like margaritas frozen or flavored, but we kind of think that's the wimpy way to enjoy them.

Another thing we love about margaritas? The food that comes with it. Margaritas go perfectly with burritos, fajitas, nachos, guacamole and everything else that's Mexican and delicious. In fact, the only other alcoholic drink we like almost as much when we're chowing down on Mexican food is a Corona with lime. So if you're over 21, celebrate National Margarita Day with a nice frosty one tonight -- Jimmy Buffett optional. Or if you have another cocktail that you prefer over this salty drink, do tell ...

    Not enough options, I only drink margaritas when a restaurant doesn't have any good beer on tap. So many places in small town Texas only have bud and bud light.

    It does sound "orangy"... I'll have to think up a drink recipe and get back to you on that one!
  • Treedy the fuze 2012/02/24 14:49:24
    Did I just have a "duh" moment?
  • the fuze Treedy 2012/02/24 15:05:23
    the fuze
    Not at all, I look at it as a moment of inspiration, an opportunity to discover a new drink perhaps?
  • Treedy the fuze 2012/02/24 16:30:43
    Maybe a tequila sunrise mixed with lime and served in a margarita glass salt included! lol Thank God It's Friday!!!
  • MissNovemberTuesday 2012/02/23 12:03:24
    I can't stand ANYTHING with tequila in it. Now add some rum and we're talkin'! I'll take a hurricane or a daiquiri or some rum punch any day.

  • Treedy wow-really 2012/02/23 15:43:36
    LOL! I definitely hope that's juice in a margarita glass. I was like yeah that's what I'm talking about until I saw the cutie pie faces.
  • wow-really Treedy 2012/02/24 15:01:55
    Me too!!!! LOL!
    It looks like the reall deal...hopefully it's not : )
  • Treedy wow-really 2012/02/24 15:03:35
    It's probably a virgin margarita. The lime juice is really tasty if you add some ginger ale.
