Quite Possibly the World’s Most Perfect Sour*
*In my opinion
The margarita is one of the world’s most beloved cocktails – and for good reason. The balance of sweet, tart and spirit is the perfect refreshment year round, whether it’s a hot summer day or a brisk winter evening. After all – what good is Taco Tuesday without a good margarita to wash it all down with?
The origins of this cocktail are probably one of the most contested in the cocktail world. Last I counted there are no less than 9 different references to the creation of this cocktail. The most common explanation suggests that this cocktail was created as a result of prohibition and thirsty Americans quenching their thirst south of the border – and its recipe was an early adaptation from the brandy daisy.
There are as many if not more variations on how to make a margarita as there are origin stories. The classic version, the “Tommy’s” version, a hybrid, Jose Cuervo bucket or margarita mixer, and every fruit”color under the rainbow.
Here is one of my favorite ways to make a margarita, but as always – drink what you like!
