What is a Margarita?
Well we are going to assume you actually do know what a margarita is otherwise we doubt you would have chosen to read this article in the first place. For the sake of some formal knowledge then a a margarita (in its classic form) is made from tequila, lime juice and Cointreau or Triple Sec and served in a glass with a salted rim—it is a perfect combination of sweet, salty, sour and bitter. The beverage can also be served frozen and with sweeter fruit juices or freshly puréed fruits that added. The Smithsonian claims that not one single person can be directly linked to the creation of the margarita but that one of the prevalent stories is that Carlos “Danny” Herrera developed the drink at his Tijuana-area restaurant, Rancho La Gloria, around 1938. As the legend goes, Herrera dreamed up the cocktail for one of his customers, an aspiring actress named Marjorie King who was allergic to all hard alcohol other than tequila. To make the liquor more palatable to his fussy client, he combined the elements of a traditional tequila shot—a lick of salt and a wedge of lime—and turned them into a refreshing drink.
