Laredo, with its vibrant culture and love for all things festive, celebrates Margarita Day in style. Local bars and restaurants usually offer special promotions on Margaritas, encouraging residents and visitors alike to indulge in the city's lively atmosphere.

The precise origins of Margarita Day are somewhat elusive, but it is believed to have originated in the United States as a way to celebrate and appreciate the classic cocktail. The Margarita itself, however, has a more traceable history.

Others suggest that it was invented by a bartender in Tijuana in the 1940s. Regardless of its exact birthplace, the Margarita quickly became a worldwide sensation and earned its place as a timeless favorite.
