While the origin of the margarita is pretty fuzzy, it was invented between 1938 and 1948. No can remember when it happened exactly, probably because of the tequila.

Margaritas are both my friend and my foe. On one hand, they give me quite a good buzz pretty quickly, they taste delicious and come in awesome frozen flavors like mango. On the other hand, they give me quite a good buzz pretty quickly, which leads to me talking too loudly about the people I'm near, partially falling off of my chair at moments, and singing along with whatever music is playing. Maybe I'm listening to what you're saying, maybe I'm not. Margaritas kind of turn me into my worst self, but they also make everything a lot more fun. So I stick with them. I mean, look at this thing. Tell me you don't want to sip it until you have a brain freeze.

To refresh your memory (we can't all be mixologists (sheesh)), margaritas are a tasty concoction of tequila, triple sec, and lime/lemon juice. And if you're like me and dig the frozen kind, pureed fruity goodness. The salt on the rim is optional, as is your verbal censor once you get about 3/4 of the way through your first drink. Hey man, you know what? If I can squeeze in a serving of fruit while getting tipsy at the same time, things can't be that bad, y'know? We live in a world where you can get drunk drinking liquid fruit and alcohol. That sounds like a pretty damn great world to me, guys. To misquote Arrested Development, 'Say what you want about America - thirteen bucks can still get you a hell of a lot of margs!' (Who said anything bad about America?)

So, what do you think?
