This Saturday, February 22nd, 2020, is National Margarita Day! (How awesome is it that it falls on the weekend this year?!) According to the National Margarita Day website, it seems that there's some debate over the person that is responsible for inventing the classic margarita, although they do say that it happened "during the 1930’s or 1940’s". They also explain that frozen margaritas were "invented later in 1970’s when an inventive bartender converted a soft serve ice cream unit into a frozen margarita machine."
