The Margarita is the world’s most popular tequila based cocktail. It’s hard to say definitively that who created the Margarita and tracing its true origin is nearly impossible.

Everyone  has different story or theory and everyone is right or wrong. We commonly like the story of one Enrique Gutierrez who created the cocktail in the early 1940s in Tijuana, Mexico , as an homage to actress Rita Hayworth, whose real name was Margarita Cansino. There’s the another one story of the woman who requested a Magnolia in a bar in Ciudad Juarez  , but the bartender , forgot the recipe and improvised  the Margarita instead. Whatever its source or history , we are glad the Margarita’s here to stay.
