History of the Margarita
Did you know Margarita Day is on February 22nd every year? Margaritas have played a huge part in our history and so they even get their very own day. The margarita was first concocted by a Mexican man named Danny in 1938, so it’s been around for a while. Apparently there was a guy who was allergic to everything, but tequila. And, the guy didn’t want to drink tequila straight so someone whipped him up a cocktail.
Of course there are other theories about how it came around. Eventually, it got its name margarita. Margarita means daisy, so when you drink a margarita, you are drinking a daisy drink.
Today, they are one of America’s favorite cocktails!
Fruity Strawberry Margarita Ingredients
These ingredients make 1 margarita. It only takes about two minutes to make this classic drink.
- 1.5 oz Tequila
- 1.5 oz Triple Sec (or orange liquor)
- 3 oz sour mix
- 3 large strawberries (or 4 medium, or 1/3 cup strawberry puree)
- 1 cup ice
- *optional sugar or salt for rim
Fruity Strawberry Margarita Directions
First, if you choose, you will want to rim the glass so it is ready to go. Then, follow the steps below!
- In blender or smoothie maker combine all ingredients.
- Blend until well combined and ice is smooth consistency.
- Pour into glass of choice and serve.
How to Rim the Glass
You do not have to rim the glass, but it is very common to do so. You can use either salt or sugar around the rim of the glass. To rim the glass, use a strawberry or lime and run the juice along edge of glass. Dip into sugar or salt.
Salt or Sugar? If you aren’t sure whether you want to rim your glass with salt or sugar, it’s all about preference. Salt is good at breaking the taste of the alcohol as you drink, but sugar can make your drink a little sweeter. I personally prefer sugar to salt as I feel salt takes away from the sweetness of the margarita. However, it’s totally your choice.
What Tequila Should I Use?
Because this is a mixed drink, you don’t have to use top of the shelf tequila. However, you definitely want a silver tequila rather than a gold tequila. I prefer to get 1800 Tequila Silver. But, other silver tequilas would work just as well too.
