WHAT IS A MARGARITA COCKTAIL?

The Margarita cocktail consists of tequila, orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, etc.), and lime juice often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The is served in a multitude of variations – on the rocks (with ice), frozen (blended with ice) or straight up (with no ice). It can be served in old fashioned or rocks glasses, coupes or martini glasses but the also have their own specific Margarita glass which is a stepped-diameter variation on a coupe glass.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MARGARITA

According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, the margarita is merely a popular Mexican and American drink, the Daisy (margarita is Spanish for “daisy”), remade with tequila instead of brandy, which became popular during Prohibition as people drifted over the border for alcohol. There is an account from 1936 of Iowa newspaper editor James Graham finding such a cocktail in Tijuana, years before any of the other margarita “creation myths”.
