We celebrate a lot of things in America. Some are well known and important like Veterans Day. Some are aimed at a niche group like May the Fourth. Some are strange like Hoodie Hoo Day, and some I just don’t believe like Eyelash Day.

However, there are some that are worthy of a celebration which brings us to today, National Margarita Day.

Not that you need a reason to celebrate the margarita, right?

I’m not big on cocktails, but I love a good margarita. Tequila and lime must be my love language. Apparently, our team loves them, too. From Texas to Japan to England, here are some of our favorites.

By the way, we don’t think those calories are totally correct and calories on margaritas shouldn’t count anyway!

 

Mallory prefers a fruitier take on the drink:
