The History of the Margarita

The margarita was invented in the year 1942 by a wonderful Mexican(now Mexican American) man by the name of Francisco Morales. An epic name for the creator of an epic drink. It was named after a flower, although it was an ongoing joke that it was actually named after his wife.

Morales has recounted exactly how this drink came to be; It was created on the fourth of July to be specific. He was a bartender, and a woman came up to the bar and ordered a Magnolia. It stands to be said, that much like cooks or artists, bartenders have way too much pride to admit they don’t know how to make something, so he got to work. He had a broad idea of what a Magnolia was, in that it contained Cointreau, lime, and some kind of alcohol. In order to spare his ego, he opted for tequila. The woman noted that it wasn’t a magnolia but it was darn good.

To which Morales replied, ‘Oh, I thought you said, Margarita’. And that is how this amazing drink was born.

I’m sure Francisco Morales would have never thought that years down the line, the drink would be so widely known and iconic that it would literally be printed on people’s bodies…permanently. But alas, so is life. Unexplainable and unexpected. I thought this story was too funny not to share. It’s pure gold!
