Many people claim to have invented the Margarita but the most wide spread belief is that Carlos “Danny” Herrera developed the drink at his Tijuana-area restaurant, Rancho La Gloria, around 1938.
In its classic form—tequila, lime juice and Cointreau or Triple Sec, served in a glass with a salted rim—it is a perfect combination of sweet, salty, sour and bitter. Like most things, margaritas got better over time. What was often considered a spring/summer drink, with a few tweaks can now be enjoyed winter and fall as well. Here are 7 crazy margaritas you need to drink all year. *Whispers* pair it with some crazier tacos.
