How are you going to spend National Margarita Day? On Eye Opener, Pete Lattanzio came by from Philadelphia’s Distrito Restaurant. Distrito will be celebrating National Margarita Day with happy hour specials from 5 p.m.-7 p.m.

Two popular margaritas that will be served are the house margarita with a el Jimador blanco  and a specialty margarita with a herradura double barrel.

On average Americans consume about 185,000 margaritas per hour and the United States is the number one tequila market in the world. A margarita consists of very simple ingredients. This includes two parts tequila, triple sec, fresh squeezed lime juice, and simple syrup.
