The Margarita, one of Mexico's most famous exports, is a cocktail consisting of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice, often served with salt on the rim of the glass. Belonging to the “sour cocktail family” Margarita is the Spanish word for “daisy”. More than one person claims to have invented the Margarita, including Carlos "Danny" Herrera at his Tijuana restaurant, Rancho La Gloria, around 1938. 

Below we have compiled a list of the best variations of the Margarita so get your shaker ready and don’t forget to add those delicious bits of salt to experience this cocktail’s uniquely lavish explosion of sweet and tart flavours. 

And a tip: whichever Margarita recipe you choose, use the highest quality 100% agave tequila possible – whether it's Blanco/Silver, Joven/Gold, Reposado, Anejo or Extra Anejo/Maduro. Your head will certainly thank you the next day.
