Legend holds that the margarita was discovered by the ancient Aztecs, who stumbled upon an enchanted waterfall gushing with tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau.

News of the boozy discovery spread across the continent, and pretty soon, bartenders were shaking up their own limey elixirs. Today, we honor the majestic margarita with its own national holiday on February 22. On Tuesday, celebrate the king of cocktails with these National Margarita Day freebies and deals:

  • Black Angus Steakhouse – Sip on a Premium Gold Strike margarita for $5 in the BullsEye Bar. The cocktail is handcrafted from Sauza Blue Reposado Blue Agave Tequila and Patrón Citrónge Liqueur infused with fresh lime-agave mix.
  • Margarita’s Mexican Restaurant – If you have “Marg” or “Rita” in your name (such as Margaret or Dorita), you can stop buy for a free Famous Taster, which includes a chicken burrito, cheese enchilada, and ground beef taco with Mexican rice and beans. You can also try a limited-time tropical margarita, such as the Coco Azul or Mango Tango.
  • Margaritaville – Enjoy a margarita for $3.50, and take advantage of other special offers on National Margarita Day.
