History of the Margarita
Before we dive right into the margaritas, let’s begin with the origin story. While the history of the margarita isn’t exactly set in stone, it is believed to have originated from a cocktail known as the ‘daisy’. This cocktail had a mix of alcohol (tequila was the original), citrus juice and grenadine. Eventually the ‘daisy’ took on the Spanish translation and we were blessed with the margarita!
