Happy National Margarita Day- Original recipe

“America loves margaritas. It’s the number-one-selling cocktail in the country,” said Kyle Ford, a New York City-based mixologist and brand ambassador for Cointreau, a brand of triple sec, an orange-flavored liqueur that is an ingredient in the standard margarita. “There’s a holiday for almost everything, so how cool is it that there’s one for a cocktail?”

Like most cocktail lore, there are conflicting sources about the origins of the margarita, but Ford subscribes to one story: The first margarita was created in 1948 by Margaret “Margarita” Sames, a Dallas Socialite who “had a penchant for tequila, and loved Cointreau.” During one party at her Acapulco vacation home - which is said to have lasted two weeks - she served the spirits mixed with fresh lime juice and garnished the rim of the glass with salt.
