A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

From the Knowledge Vault

The Margarita, or An Earthy Mystery

Americans drink a lot of Margaritas. While the Margarita makes up eighteen percent of the mixed drinks ordered in the United States, tequila represents only six percent of the domestic spirits market. Unfortunately, we drink a lot of bad Margaritas too. Neon colored, super-sweet, artificially flavored, poorly made, cheap ingredient, frozen-slushy Margaritas surely account for most of those eighteen percent.

Perhaps one reason that Americans drink a lot of bad Margaritas is that we seem to have no idea of its origin. There are theories (among others) that Dallas socialites, Peggy Lee, Mexican (or Irish, or Texan) bartenders, German ambassador’s daughters or Ziegfeld Follies dancers all have a hand in the drink.

    Shockingly good. Wonderful herbal / bitter / sweet balance with the nuttiness of the amontillado kind of rounding it out underneath.

    A bit flat, maybe better with a 1/2 oz. lemon juice?

  • Re Continuum, 2 days 8 hours ago Pangolindo commented:

    So good, so balanced. All the ingredients mix perfectly to an unbelievable point. 5 stars. Used Clément créole shrub.

    This is actually delightfully balance... it's also huge so plan accordingly. the huge lime hit balances all that maraschino and it's really good.
