Who knew in the Land of Lincoln, where seemingly everything is more expensive than nearly every other state in the US, it's one of the cheaper places to make a margarita.

Since tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, a day commemorating the Mexican army's victory at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, it's easy to assume many quarantined folks around the country will celebrate with a margarita or two or six.

So HouseMethod conducted a survey to find which states can make a margarita the cheapest.

We collected data on the price of five main margarita ingredients from zip codes throughout the country to determine the cost of making a margarita in each state.

Arizona took the top spot, where a margarita can get made for only $2.01. Apparently, Jose Cuervo tequila is cheaper in Arizona than any other state in the US.

Illinois wasn't too far behind, ranking as the 6th cheapest state in the US to make a margarita at $2.26.

Alabama is the most expensive state in the country, checking in at $3.00 a serving.
