Top Places To Celebrate National Margarita Day In North Texas

According to the official National Margarita Day website, the national food holiday was founded out of love and appreciation for the drink by real estate agent Todd McCalla in 2008. Since then it's become one of the most popular food holidays in the country, reminding us every year that cold weather is no excuse to pass on the opportunity to enjoy a well-done margarita.

So we know why margaritas deserve a day in its honor, that much is obvious, but why not celebrate it on its birthday? Well, as with so many of the great modern inventions, several people between the '30s and '40s claimed to be the original creators of the drink, making it difficult to pinpoint the exact date, place, or person who created it.

One of the most outlandish stories — certainly the one with the most celebrities involved — comes from right here in North Texas. Legend has it that Dallas socialite Margarita Sames put together the drink to treat guests during a vacation in Acapulco in 1948. One of the guests, one Nick Hilton, enjoyed the drink so much, he took the recipe back with him to add it to his hotel chain menu. Or maybe it was some of the other guests lucky enough to first try the drink who made it popular: Fred MacMurray, Lana Turner, or John Wayne.

The one thing we know for sure is what Todd McCalla has been telling us for 15 years: margaritas are delicious, refreshing and perfect for any day of the year.
