One of the most popular and timeless cocktails ordered in bars the world over, the Margarita is a citrus-forward summer sipper–the simple yet perfect balance of sourness and salinity. Legend has it, its invention belongs to some crafty Tequila marketer somewhere along the border with Northern Mexico and Texas in the late 1930’s. The Mommenpop Margarita might just become your new favorite, its definitely ours!
