How to Make a Sweet & Original Margarita
Updated: Jun 22, 2020
Last week if you watched my IGTV, you'd have seen me and @min_effort made margaritas! Perfect for a summers evening, or, any occasion really!
We have put together both a sweet & original margarita if you would like to taste-test the two, I mean why not?! It is the weekend.
The origin of the cocktail is debated by many, but the most likely theory comes from prohibition times.
There used to be a very popular cocktail across the USA known as the 'Brandy Daisy'. It was made similar to a modern-day margarita, but (as the name suggests) used brandy as the main ingredient.
During prohibition, brandy, whiskey, and other American spirits were very hard to come by, and people often travelled across the border to Mexico for drinks.
The most popular spirit in Mexico? Tequila, of course!
With the new use of the Mexican liquor, the 'Daisy' was translated into Spanish, and the 'Margarita' cocktail was born!
Throw ice in a cocktail shaker.
50ml tequila 25ml orange liqueur
25ml lime juice
25ml sugar syrup
Shake Rub lime around the rim of a glass and cover in a thin layer of salt Strain drink into glass Garnish with a lime
Exactly the same, but swap round the measurements for tequila and sugar syrup
Then use sugar for the glass instead of salt.
You can also throw everything into a blender with ice, and make yourself some frozen margaritas too!
We hope you've enjoyed this short, but very sweet (kinda like the sweet margarita) blog - please see the video below of us in action!
