Who Developed Margaritas?
Margaritas…were they invited in 1942 by a man named Pancho Morales or by Johnny Durlesser? Better yet, let’s throw more names into the mix of possible Margarita creators such as Carlos (Danny) Herrera, in 1938? However, the Texas socialite Margaret Sames claimed she mixed the first drink at a house party in Mexico in 1948. Let’s not forget about Rita Hayworth (whose real name was Margarita Casino) who could have been the margarita inventor in the 1940s!
It’s hard to say exactly who the margarita originated from, but what we do know is that it’s a delicious, tasty cocktail!
The Original Margarita Recipe
There are several ways to make margaritas and so many flavors to choose from! You can have it frozen or on the rocks. Name any flavor, and it can probably be turned into a Margarita! But the original margarita recipe was made with Tequila, Lime Juice, Orange Liqueur, and a splash of soda, served in a glass with rimmed salt.
Jell-Craft’s Margarita Lemon-Lime Concentrate is a replica of the original margarita, all you need to add is Jell-Craft’s Triple Sec, tequila, and salt. Jell-Craft’s Margarita Concentrate can be made frozen or on the rocks, whichever your preference is.
In fact, skip the tequila altogether and enjoy a virgin margarita! Follow the direction on the side of the Jell-Craft Margarita Concentrate label and eliminate the tequila. Feel free to modify by adding in more mix, water, or ice to dilute the concentrate to your liking.
