The first margarita was made in the 1930' or 40's depending on the story you believe. There are lots of stories about the origin of the Margarita, some say a Tijuana bartender created the drink in the late-1930s, others claim a Texas woman dreamed this up in her villa in Acapulco. But really, the only thing I care about is how amazing this creation tastes and how simple it is to make.
The best Margaritas use fresh lime + quality tequila and good orange liqueur, like Cointreau or Grand Marnier. Simple, easy, stress-free. For the best results use a high-quality tequila, made with 100 percent agave.
For me, there's nothing better than a perfectly mixed margarita.
* A note about pre-mixed margarita and mixes. I personally think there are a few premade margaritas that are actually pretty good and make it easy to throw an impromptu party. I do draw the line at the pre-sweetened mixes - I've never had good results using these.
Obviously, the best margarita is made with freshly squeezed lime. So let's make a pitcher of Margaritas!

This will make one cocktail, to make a pitcher just change the number of servings and the recipe will recalculate.  Simple, right.
