Margarita Day!

Not many people know that the famously delicious drink, the Margarita, was named for the famous actress, Rita Hayworth (aka Margarita Carmen Cansino).  There is still some debate about this... but... we'll just claim it as fact.  Today, October 17, 2012 would be Rita's 94th birthday.


Because I adore both Rita and Margaritas, I dub October 17th, Margarita Day.  I hope you'll all raise (at least) one delicious glass (even if its a virgin) to one amazing lady to celebrate her birthday.

And in case you don't know... this is my favorite scene from my favorite film, Gilda, starring Miss Hayworth in her most famous role.
