A Brief History of the Margarita Drink
There are several accounts of how the drink was invented. A tale said years ago, “bartender, Don Carlos Orozco,” at Hussong’s Cantina in Ensenada, Mexico made the drink in 1941 for Margarita Henkel, the daughter of the visiting German Ambassador, naming it after because she loved the drink so much… The other story goes that in 1938, halfway between the Mexican town of Tijuana and Rosarito, restaurant owner Carlos “Danny” Herrera created the drink for a customer named Marjorie King.

Everyone loves margaritas! They are a favorite cocktail for many and a special summer pleasure. But what we love about them, specifically, is the mix of a few grain of crunchy crushed salt from the rim combined with citrusy-sweet liquid. Because of this, many of you are know to lick salt, tajin or sugar from the rim of the glass or rotate the glass so we can sip all the way around the rim and eventually get all the salt, tajin, or sugar and enjoy every single sip until it’s all gone and ready to order another margarita.
