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.

    Super funky drink, but all comes together well. Great for something different.

    Subbed the Uigeadail with Wee Beastie. Still had to double the Frangelico to be recognizable.

  • Re Sweet Caisata, 3 days ago Zachary Pearson commented:

    The liqueur they're using here is 60 proof. Some people might want to drop the simple. Thanks, Zachary

    I find lemon juice overpowers more subtle flavors, so I dial it back to 1/2 ounce here. Tasty!

    "1 splash" is not correct. You probably want at least 2 ounces of tonic in this, and at least another ounce of seltzer to dilute the intense sweetness.
