The stories behind the invention of the Margarita are as plentiful as the variations of this popular cocktail.

If the story of Margaret Sames’ is to be believed, we owe so many of our late nights, tipsy summer afternoons and bonfires on the beach to her. A Dallas socialite who combined her two favourite spirits, Tequila and Cointreau in a sombrero shaped glass, salted the rim for a savoury element to bring out the flavours and garnished with lime to welcome her guests to her party. The cocktail was a hit of course, and one such guest who happened to be from Spain, named the concoction Margarita.
