Tequila lovers in the United States can rejoice because February 22 is National Margarita Day. The day celebrates the popular cocktail made from tequila, lime and sometimes fruity or spicy flavors. Luckily, a few places will be offering deals to celebrate the holiday.
It’s important for margarita fans to enjoy the cocktails while they last. There are reports of a tequila shortage. Reuters has reported that the high demand for tequila has led to a shortage of agave, which is the plant used to make tequila. The tequila shortage is predicted to last until 2021.
