The history of the Margarita

One of the most popular stories about the origin of the Margarita comes from Tijuana, Mexico, where it is said that the drink was first mixed in the 1930s or 1940s by a bartender named Francisco “Pancho” Morales. According to this story, Morales was experimenting with different cocktail recipes when he came up with the Margarita. He mixed together tequila, lime juice, and a touch of orange liqueur, and served it in a salt-rimmed glass, creating a classic recipe that is still popular today.
