HOW TO MAKE THE BEST MARGARITA RECIPE.
Nobody really knows who invented the Margarita, but there are many stories about its origin and just as many people who claim to have invented it. One of the oldest stories regarding the creation of the Margarita surrounds a customer’s allergy to most spirits, except for tequila. The bartender essentially turned a tequila shot into cocktail recipe, using these three essential ingredients: tequila, cointreau/triple sec, and lime.
