A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

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.

    Like a cardamom whisky sour - excellent. Used pineapple rum.

    Swapped the Chartreuse for Suze and the dashes of Fernet with Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters. Strong and sweet drink, but not too sweet! Used Rittenhouse (100 proof) rye which I feel helped balance things.

    Using Creme of Coconut (1:1 sugar to coconut milk), this was a delicious drink. Well balanced with some funk from the dark rum and orgeat, but without the heavy marzipan some orgeat drinks can get. A great staple.
