The margarita is believed to have been created in 1948 by a wealthy Dallas socialite, Margaret “Margarita” Sames. Margaret was on vacation in Acapulco and according to The Nibble, she wanted something refreshing that she cool serve poolside before lunch.
There are many variations of margaritas today, however the classic variety has just three ingredients: tequila, triple sec and lime juice. It can be served three different ways, neat (as shown below), on the rocks or frozen.
Thanks Margaret for creating this tasty concoction. I’ll take mine pool side, on the rocks and with salt please!
