Mondays are a little less miserable when margaritas are involved!

Today, February 22nd, is National Margarita Day! According to a survey from National Today, 76% of Americans say they enjoy margaritas, and 33% say that it's their favorite 'happy hour' drink. When it comes to types of margaritas, 67% of the Americans surveyed prefer them frozen, while 33% would rather have them on ice. Another 65% like a salted rim.

In case you're wondering the 'World's Largest Glass of Margarita' was made at Margaritaville in Las Vegas back in 2011. It had a volume of 8,500 gallons! The official website says:

"It took approximately 300 hours and 60 people to prepare the drink, appropriately named 'Lucky Rita.'"
