About The Margarita Cocktail Recipe Cocktail

While the Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails in North America, its origins are shrouded in mystery. There are almost as many stories about who invented the margarita as there are margarita recipes. Some like them blended, others with a sweetener, but many argue the best margarita recipe is this classic one. Memorize it and you’ll never fail to impress.
