COCKTAILS CREATION:

MARGARITA 

Friday 05/06/2020

This week we are making the margarita! It's easier than you think our recipe only uses three ingredients! 

A little history lesson on the margarita: according to cocktail historian David Wondrich, the margarita is merely a popular Mexican and American drink, the Daisy (margarita is Spanish for "daisy"), remade with tequila instead of brandy, which became popular during Prohibition as people drifted over the border for alcohol.
