A margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice. People serve it with salt or sugar on the rim of the glass. 


It is acceptable to serve the drink in a wide variety of glass types. The types range from cocktail and wine glasses to pint glasses and even large schooners. The drink is traditionally served in the eponymous margarita glass, a stepped-diameter variant of a cocktail glass or champagne coupe. 


National Margarita Day is Feb. 22! We pay tribute and honor the drink on this special day of celebration. We so deeply respect and value its place in our history that we have set aside Feb. 22 of every year. Todd McCalla founded the day to spread his love for the drink all around the world.
