A little history
The Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails in North America—for good reason. Combining the tang of lime and the sweetness of orange liqueur and the mixed flavored juices added to the distinctive strength of tequila, Stella’s Margarita strikes all of the right keys.
Who invented the drink or which triple sec to use Cointreau or Grand-Marnier (the original Margarita used Cointreau.)
There are many claims to the famous recipe, we have retained this one:
The margarita was invented in 1938 by Carlos “Danny” Herrera at his restaurant Rancho La Gloria, halfway between Tijuana and Rosarito, Baja California. It was created for one of his customers the dancer Marjorie King, who was allergic to many spirits, but not to tequila.
Try Stella’s version, memorize it, and you’ll always impress.
Aging Tequila is more than as science it is a skill, aging in French oak barrels give the agave more complex results, which will excite palates with infusing new flavors to the aged product a good bodega is cool and produce the dark gold anejo. All 100% agave must be “Hetcho en Mexico,” to be pure.
