MARGARITA

Additional Info

  • Origin: Although many people refer to the story of Margarita Sames who supposedly invented the drink while entertaining friends in 1948, there are many conflicting stories dating as far back as the 1930s. In fact there is evidence to suggest that Americans were drinking Tequila Daisies (Margaritas) as ealry as 1936. Interestingly, the recipe for a British cocktail called the Picador was recently discovered in a 1937 cocktail book, made exactly the same way as the Margarita without the salt rim. This precedes the first written record of a Margarita by 16 years!
