Margarita is among the most widely loved cocktails that have been on bar menus for ages. With base elements including triple sec orange liquor, lime juice, and tequila along with salt on the rim, this elegant drink came a long way from its murky origins.

Showing up on bar menus in the late 30s, Margarita’s story is shrouded in mystery. There are several stories related to the origins of margaritas. Among these, the most widely accepted story suggests that it originated in Mexico in the late 1930s or early 1940s, and a bartender named  Carlos "Danny" Herrera created the drink for a customer named Margarita Henkel as she was allergic to many spirits but could tolerate tequila. Another story suggests that the same bartender created this concoction for a dancer named Marjorie King who was also allergic to spirits and Herrera named the drink after her using the Spanish word for daisy, which is ‘margarita.’

The most popular category of cocktails called “The Daisy” started gaining prominence in the 20th century and served as a precursor to the beloved margarita. It featured a spellbound combination of spirits, citrus, and sweeteners which laid the foundation for the iconic margaritas seen today. Try these enthralling margarita blends and celebrate this National Margarita Day with a splash of festivity.
