Margarita how to prepare the perfect cocktail with tequila

Margarita how to prepare the perfect cocktail with tequila. The perfect margarita, one of the most requested and simple cocktails in the bartender, its combination of tequila, lime juice and triple sec, never fails. Served with salt on the rim of the glass, it gives it that excellent touch with citrus.

It was the combination that introduced Mexican brandy to the US. There are many theories of the origin of the name, what they do seem to agree on is that it is dedicated to a woman. It is said that around 1936, in Puebla, Mexico, Danny Negrete, manager of the Hotel Crespo, prepared it for the first time for his girlfriend. Marjorie King, an American actress, also asked the bartender at the Gloria Bar to prepare it for her, since this was the only brandy she could tolerate. The bartender, in love with her, skillfully mixed her appropriate ingredients: tequila, salt and lime, added triple sec and created one of the most famous cocktails in history. Perhaps they are all assumptions, but it is clear that a woman was a fundamental part of his creation.
