What comes to your mind when you think of tequila, lime juice and triple sec? It is the classic Margarita, ofcourse. This cocktail has been a staple on the menu for decades and this is because of a reason. But do you know where did this cocktail come from? Well, there are quite many legends that talk about the origin of margaritas.
If tequila brand Jose Cuervo is to be believed, first margarita was said to be made by a bartender in 1938 to ‘capture the heart’ of Rita de la Rose, a Mexican showgirl. Another legend about the origin stated that Franciso ‘Pancho’ Morals invented the drink on July 4th, 1942, at a bar in Mexico. There is one more story related to the origin of this cocktail. It says that Dallas socialite Margarita Sames created the cocktail in Acapulco in 1948. No matter how this cocktail came to being, this cocktail will stay close to our hearts, forever.
