Margarita cocktail with a lime wedge and salt



According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, the margarita is related to a popular Mexican drink, the Daisy (margarita is Spanish for “daisy”), remade with tequila instead of brandy. (Daisies are a family of cocktails that include a base spirit, liqueur, and citrus. A sidecar and gin daisy are other related drinks.) It became popular during Prohibition as U.S. residents travelled to Mexico for alcohol. It was further popularized by the 1977 song “Margaritaville” by Jimmy Buffett, and in 2004 it was described as “the most popular mixed drink in America”.[42] Another reason that has been given for the margarita’s popularity is that it feels more complete than a drink that only has sweet and sour flavors, since it engages a third primary taste, salt.[
