Tequila & Daisies

Fun Facts are always just that…fun! In an earlier blog post I expressed how I love daisies. Well, I also love tequila. Some things are just meant to be….

When you make your next margarita think of not just tequila but daisies!

Let’s start things off with one fact…no one is really certain of the origin of the margarita. One story revolves around a totally separate drink, The Daisy. In its heyday in the late 1930s, The Daisy included a base liquor such as tequila, curacao and citrus. Tequila Daisies appeared in cocktail pamphlets from this period, and it’s not too much of a stretch to see how this morphed into the margarita: the word “margarita” is Spanish for “daisy”.

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner so bookmark this blog post so you can refer back and know how to make a Tequila Daisy for your next celebration.

½ ounce fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon superfine sugar
2 ounces tequila
½ ounce fine orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
Club Soda to top

In a cocktail shaker, stir together the lemon juice and superfine sugar. Add the tequila and orange liqueur. Fill the shaker with ice, shake until the mixture is well-chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with club soda and ENJOY!
