It is National Margarita Day 2012, which is a bit unfortunate for those in the U.S. who just celebrated Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday because today is Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent.

What could be more refreshing after the first half of the week? No doubt plenty of people will enjoy National Margarita Day 2012.

The origin of the flavorful beverage is somewhat contentious, but the fact is, it was invented, and now it is here for people to enjoy. Do you have plans to imbibe in a delicious margarita today in honor of this national day celebrating the drink? If so, what is your favorite way to enjoy the drink? Where is your favorite place to get one?
