Sunday is National Margarita Day, a time to take a trip to mark the occasion and hoist a salt-rimmed glass to toast the cocktail's creator, whomever he or she was.
The classic Mexican concoction of tequila, lime juice and Cointreau or Triple Sec is marked every Feb. 22. The drink's creation dates to the late 1930s or early '40s, though the origin is fuzzy, according to a story in Smithsonian Magazine.
Nowadays there are endless twists on the classic, and endless places to visit to find them. Here are nine cocktails perfect for a Margarita Day getaway. The only thing you'll need to ponder: salt or no salt?
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico: The resort serves up a Carrot Margarita made with Tequila Clase Azul Platino, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, fresh carrot juice and lavender syrup. You'll find it at the Resort at Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. (It costs $13 but will be discounted to $10 on Sunday.)
Lanai, Hawaii: Shake it up with the $15 Elderflower Margarita, a mix of Patron Silver Tequila, Elderflower liqueur, agave nectar and grapefruit juice served at Four Seasons Lanai at Manele Bay on Hawaii's Lanai Island.
San Diego: The South American Margarita skips the tequila and replaces it with Kaapa Pisco paired with muddled blueberries, agave nectar and fresh lime juice. It costs $7 and is served at Don Chido restaurant in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter.
Nationwide: Omni Hotels rolls out a series of margaritas for National Margarita Day, including a Smoky Margarita for $15. It's made with Del Maguey Vida Mezcal shaken with Grand Marnier and is available until the end of the year at most of the brand's properties across the country.
