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.

A fun but classic twist on an original Margarita, this recipe simply requires the usual ingredients (tequila, triple sec and lime) be combined in a blender with crushed ice to create a summery, grown-up slushie.

A Frozen Margarita is the ultimate summer thirst quencher, cold, zingy and packing a healthy tequila punch, it’s sure to go down well at any event. For those hoping to showcase agave based spirits, this a great cocktail for the less seasoned drinkers among your guests and the perfect way to introduce people to tequila.

This drink does require a blender to make, so if you’re hoping to include it on your menu be aware that it will need a power source and it may not be quite as quick to produce as some of our other options. You may want to pair it with some simpler cocktails to help regulate the speed of service. Another great beginner tequila cocktail is the Tommy’s Margarita; a mild version of the original that uses the natural sweetener, agave syrup, to round out the sharp notes of the tequila and lime, this drink is not only quick and simple, but incredibly moreish too.

For those who are including a Frozen Margarita on their cocktail menu, you may want to add some other blended drinks as well. There are loads of fun cocktails made in a blender and if you already have the equipment on site there’s no reason not to try some of these alternatives. One particularly popular blended cocktail is the Batida, this Brazilian drink mixes cachaça (a Brazilian spirit distilled from sugar cane) with fresh fruit and condensed milk to make a tropical, boozy milkshake.

If you’re interested in featuring a Frozen Margarita on your cocktail menu and want to know more about what drinks might work well alongside it, be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options, or check out some other tequila based, summery and blended cocktails from our list.
