History

The Margarita‘s creation is shrouded in mystery. We do know that it was created sometime around the 1930’s, but nobody is quite sure where or quite sure when. However it has gone on to become a classic cocktail the world over, with an ever expanding library of twists filling bartender manuals across the world. Despite this, the ingredients should always be the same no matter what else is added: tequila, lime and sugar.

According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, author of Imbibe!, the best guess is that the Margarita as we know and love it evolved from a cocktail known as the “daisy.” This, a mix of alcohol, citrus juice, and grenadine served over shaved ice, was popular during the interwar years. There were gin daisies, whiskey daisies and, with the passage of time, inevitably, tequila daisies. The original recipe called for tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and a dash of soda.

At some point, this Mexican-influenced daisy became known by its Spanish eponym, ‘margarita’. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, margarita—meaning “a cocktail made with tequila and citrus fruit juice”—first appeared in print in English in 1965, though other sources point out that Margaritas were popping up in Jose Cuervo adverts as early as 1945.

The Margarita was created sometime around the 1930’s but nobody is quite sure where or quite sure when. However it has gone on to become a classic cocktail the world over with all sorts of weird and wonderful twists and created in many different forms. The base ingredients should always be the same no matter what is added: Tequila, lime and sugar.
