Mixologist: Margarita is top U.S. cocktail


UPI News Service, 02/22/2013 

A New York mixologist said Friday the margarita is the top-selling cocktail in the United States so it's "cool" the drink has its own holiday.

Kyle Ford, who works as brand ambassador for Cointreau -- a French manufacturer of triple sec, an ingredient in the classic margarita -- National Margarita Day was being celebrated Friday, the New York Daily News reported.

"America loves margaritas. It's the number-one-selling cocktail in the country," Ford said of the beverage, which also includes tequila and lime juice. "There's a holiday for almost everything, so how cool is it that there's one for a cocktail?"

Jenna Fagan, president of Avion tequila, said February is a good time for the holiday, as many people begin to tire of the winter cold.

"When you're having a great drink it transports you emotionally," Fagan said. "A margarita transports us all to summer, sitting on that beach with a margarita in hand."

Neither Ford nor the Daily News cited the source of the claim so it might be advisable to take it with a grain of salt.
