One of the world’s most popular cocktails and drink responsible for bringing tequila into the limelight. We’re not sure exactly when the margarita was created – unsurprisingly, there are several stories of how that goes.

What we do know is that it came about in the early to mid 1900s… But it didn’t catch on until the 60s when the hippies heard that tequila induced hallucinogenic effect (note: this is false), so they started ordering tequila in everything. As an already fantastic drink of the time, the Margarita took off and it’s never looked back.

Margarita Variations

If possible, ask your customer if they’d like a salt rim or not. Regardless, only rim half the glass with salt so they have the choice to drink from the side of the glass with salt or not. You can also make this drink over ice in a rocks or old-fashioned glass. Use the same proportions and similarly, only rim half the glass with salt.

Add a shot of cranberry juice, and you’ve made a Tequila Cosmo.
