Margaret Sames
(Invented: December 1948),Acapulco, México
Margaret Sames’Margarita
Ingredients Preparation Glass Garnish3 parts silver Tequila Shake with ice, ChampagneSalt rim.1 part Cointreau then strain into glass. Saucer1 part fresh lime juice
GS: The Sames story is a little strange, some of the versions of the story lead meto believe she was copying a drink she had seen somewhere else. But she, herself,claims that she personally invented it.
Margarita ratios
:2:1:1=6:3:3 (50% tequila, 25% Triple Sec, 25% fresh lime juice).3:2:1=6:4:2 (50% tequila, double as much Triple Sec than fresh lime juice).3:1:1=6:2:2 (60% tequila, 20% Triple Sec, 20% fresh lime juice).1:1:1=6:6:6 (33% tequila, 33% Triple Sec, 33% fresh lime juice).
GS: there is little difference between the 6:4:2 & 6:3:3, a mere shift of 1 (fromlime juice to Triple Sec)GS: I feel it is safe to assume that it was invented in México, using Mexican limes(“limons”), Triple Sec and Tequila.
GS: I find it curious that each inventor of the Margarita, appears to have invented a different drink proportionally.
Debating It
(Texas Monthly, August 1995):
Who created the Margarita, and when? It would be easier to identify the missinglink between man and ape. So many Margarita candidates have been put forwardand so little hard evidence has been offered that the origin of the now-ubiquitousdrink will probably never be known.
