Can’t wait for St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate drinking? Well, you’re in luck because today is Margarita Day. Strictly speaking, it’s not a real holiday, but who can fault a day that’s dedicated to female-friendly cocktails? Nobody. And for that reason, it’s only a matter of time before Long Island Iced Tea Day and Sex on the Beach Day catch on.

Surprisingly, margaritas are most popular in the land of real men, where Americans consume a staggering average of 185,000 margaritas per hour.

Although the celebration seems simple enough, a margarita is not just a margarita. Do you like your margarita blue?  On the rocks?  How would you like your margarita in cake form?  Non-alcoholic?

It may be a Monday in the coldest month of the year, but you know what’s on tap tonight.
