How To Make Margarita Cocktail (Straight Up)
Source: YouTube (Hot Bartenders LA)
Margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila mixed with orange-flavoured liqueur and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the glass rim. It is the most common tequila-based cocktail in the United States. The drink is served shaken with ice, on the rocks, blended with ice (frozen margarita) or without ice (straight up).There are a number of variations of Margarita.
There is no solid proof of who "invented" Margarita. The most accepted of all stories is that Margarita was invented in Ensenada, Mexico in October 1941 by bartender Don Carlos Orozco. One slow afternoon, Don Carlos was experimenting with mixing new drinks when a prestigious visitor arrived. She was Margarita Henkel, daughter of the German ambassador. Don Carlos offered the drink to Margarita, and named it after her for being the first person to taste it. He concocted a mixture of equal parts tequila, orange liqueur and lime, served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass.
