Why Do We Celebrate National Margarita Day?

The drink's origins seem to have buried in history. No event really confirms as to why the drink was created that led to the celebration of National Margarita Day. As many stories go, one of the most common tales related to this drink states that it was invented by Rancho La Gloria restaurant owner, Carlos Herrera in 1938. But this idea is countered by many who claim that the cocktail was invented by Don Carlos Orozco in October, 1941. It is believed that Orozco’s daughter once visited Hussong’s Cantina, a restaurant in Mexico, where Orozco would work as a bartender and requested him to make a special drink. He whipped her a cocktail that had equal parts of tequila, an orange liqueur and lime. Since her daughter’s name was Margarita, he decided to name the drink after her. Can You Drink Alcohol on a Ketogenic Diet? 5 Keto Alcoholic Drinks That Are Low in Carbs and Sugar.
