Tales of the Margarita … Many claim to be the inventor of the Margarita, but we’ll never be sure of its true origin. The most popular anecdote claims that Carlos “Danny” Herrera developed the drink at his Tijuana-area restaurant, Rancho La Gloria, around 1938. Herrera created the cocktail for one of his customers, a beautiful show girl, and aspiring actress, Marjorie King, who was allergic to all hard alcohol except than tequila. She didn’t enjoy tequila alone, so Herrera started to experiment with different combinations to make the beverage more palatable. The most delicious combination mixed white tequila with lime juice, shaved ice, triple sec and surprisingly, salt. Herrera named his concoction “Margarita” in honor of his muse, Marjorie.
