The History of the Margarita


Going back to the origins of Margarita, the drink dates back to 1942 and was first invented in Mexico by a Mexican-American named Francisco Morales. The drink is considered to be a part of the sour cocktail family and was named after a flower as it translates to daisy from Spanish. 

Consisting of three ingredients - tequila, orange liqueur, and fresh lime juice. The traditional Margarita is served in a margarita or a martini glass with a salt rim and garnished with a lime wheel, shaken with ice, and double strained. Alternatively, for the not so fancy ones, it can be served on the rocks. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can always try Tommy’s Margarita which offers a twist to the original drink by replacing the orange liqueur with agave syrup.
