Perfect Drink® recipe


The Margarita is the most common tequila based cocktail in the US. It is most often attributed to bartender Don Carlo Orozco, who supposedly created the drink in 1941 at Hussong's Cantina in Ensenada. However, there was a similar cocktail in Mexico long before Orozco that was a version of the American drink the Daisy only made with tequila instead of brandy. Margarita is Spanish for Daisy.
