The making of flavor #85, May Margarita
Step 3: Churn the ‘scream, pack up the pints.
The margarita (as we learned this weekend) is the most popular drink in the country. But its origin highly debated. The earliest reference to a “Margarita” was as Esquire’s Drink of the Month in 1953.
“She’s from Mexico, Senores, and her name is the Margarita Cocktail—and she is lovely to look at, exciting and provocative.”
But long before the Margarita lived the Tequila Daisy, a very similar cocktail, wich was ubiquitous in the 1930s. It’s basically the same thing, just sub cointreau for grenadine. So in honor of the OG margarita, the Tequila Daisy, we added a floral hint to ours this month.
