There are many myths legends and stories about who, when and where this drink was first invented. But the closest is the one according to cocktail historian David Wondrich, author of Imbile, whose best guess is that the margarita evolved from a cocktail known as the “daisy,” which has been around since the 1800’s, with its gin and whiskey sisters. The daisy cocktail would change sooner or later in the hands of a Mixologists who was trying new drinks and combinations a soon combined tequila into a daisy cocktail. This Mexican-influenced daisy soon became known by its Spanish name, margarita, which means daisy. This drink became popular during the 1930s and 40s.
This is now an essential part of any cocktail menu at any bar, pub or restaurant. Today we celebrate National Margarita Day. So, to everyone out have a drink on me.
