As of 2015, the margarita is the fifth most popular cocktail in the world. It is the most popular cocktail choice of women worldwide, and out of all the tequila-based drinks, the margarita is the most popular.
The margarita is available at almost any establishment that sells cocktails. Its popularity has been attributed to the sweet and salty flavor and its tendency to be high in alcohol content. Although the margarita is often lime flavored, there are many other flavors available, such as peach and strawberry. Popular songs, such as "Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffet, helped make the margarita one of the most popular cocktails.
