national margarita day

February 22 marks a very special holiday: National Margarita Day. This is the day to break out your blender, shaker, and bottle of triple sec. Whether you prefer your margarita on the rocks, blended, or with a touch of spice, this holiday is the perfect excuse to invite friends over to sip in honor of this adored cocktail. Keep scrolling for some National Margarita Day party essentials!


This holiday is all about celebrating the margarita. Both salty and sweet (and sometimes even a little spicy), this festive cocktail has definitely earned its own day to shine. The hardest part for you? Deciding on the perfect recipe to mix up and serve. Let us make it a little easier by recommending Ashley Rose Conway with Craft & Cocktails.

Fun Cocktail Glasses

Okay, so this might not be a traditional margarita glass, but can we talk about the color? So fun. We love the idea of serving up sips in glassware that’s both colorful and fun (and these glasses are certainly that).

You want your invite to pop the moment it’s opened, so make sure you select a design that properly sets the tone for what’s to come. For a party like this, we love the idea of sending a design that’s both bright and colorful (like these!) Greenvelope has a variety of fun margarita-inspired invites you can browse here.

End your party on a sweet note. We love the idea of sending your guests off with margarita macarons. Bonus points if they’re as cute as these beauties featured on Sugar & Cloth.
