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.

    Excellent Meletti cocktail with nice dark notes from the amaro and creme de cacao balancing rye spice. Very nice.

    The first sip or two is tasty, but ultimately I found the drink too sweet. Even though PKNY listed it in the Mai Tai section of its menu (I'm guessing because of the agricole), the lack of Curaçao makes it a lot closer to a Daiquiri. The spec, then, only has 1.5 oz of r(h)um to 1 oz of syrup, making it proportionally almost twice as sweet as a traditional Daiq, which would typically have 2 oz of rum and just .75 oz of sugar. I personally would not make again.

  • ‘French 75’ with cranberry. Lime juice mixes better with the sour cran than the lemon imo. We used a 50/50 mix with a Freixenet cava. Be sure to double strain.

    I've always thought that the PF Curacao tasted like baby aspirin. Thanks, Zachary
