NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY, WITH A SHAKER OF SALT

The pandemic has taken so much from us. But it can't take National Margarita Day. Celebrated every year on 2/22, this collective commemoration of tequila, triple sec and lime (on the rocks or blended with frozen strawberries, depending on your taste) is more vital than ever in these difficult times.

Why? Because we need to get drunk during the day, dammit, and a pitcher of tangy, zesty margs is a helluva lot more festive than a coffee mug surreptitiously filled with Evan Williams

The margarita, as you're no doubt aware, was created in Mexico in 1938 by Baja California nightlife impresario and cocktail legend Carlos "Danny" Herrera. Or perhaps in 1942 by Mexican bartender Francisco "Pancho" Morales. In any case, it was likely spawned in the first half of the 20th century by a gifted mixologist in Mexico.

Which brings us to America's biggest recent cheerleader for both the country and the beverage, Rafael "Ted" Cruz, who, candidly, is probably not having the best National Margarita Day.
