History of the Margarita

According to Smithsonian.com, there are two stories on where the margarita originated from. In 1938, Carlos “Danny” Herrera claims to have dreamed up the margarita recipe for the actress, Marjorie King, in his Tijuana-area restaurant. Another claim of this famous invention is by Margarita Sames, who in 1948 made these for her friends at her Acapulco vacation home. In 2005, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History took possession of the world’s first frozen margarita machine that was invented in 1971 by Mariano Martinez, a Dallas restaurant owner. Wherever and whenever the margarita came from, it has remained a famous drink.
