It’s Time to Steak Out Your Margarita!

Summertime = Margarita time! It doesn’t have to be summer to be Margarita time, but it sure is a staple around here during the warm months.  I don’t know of anyone who can’t find at least one Margarita recipe that they don’t like.  Try searching the web…I came up with over 500,000 recipes!  So you can imagine the turmoil we had in trying to come up with what  we think our customers would enjoy this summer. We believe we hit the jackpot!

However, before we tell you about our versions of the Margarita, do you know who invented the Margarita?  Actually there are many stories and the true origin is really unknown.   Of course,  since we are here in Texas, our favorite in the one that gives credit to Margarita Sames, a prominent Dallas Socialite.  Sure, she was in Mexico at the time having a party at her vacation home when she decided to throw together whatever liquor  was available behind the bar for her guests. And of course the magic concoction this time (apparently this was a favorite pastime) was tequila, Cointreau and lime juice. Her friends loved it and took it stateside to share with friends. And the rest is history, so to speak. Of course most people who believe that version of history are probably in Texas.

While we’re at it. let’s give a thumbs up to our friend Mariano Martinez for his invention of the frozen Margarita in the 1950’s and then the wonderful frozen Margarita machine in 1971.  Let’s face it, people from Dallas know their Margarita’s!! Thanks Margarita and Mariano. (Don’t you just love Texans?)

We’ll get back to the History of the Margarita shortly but I can’t wait to share with you our Margarita’s for this summer.  Get ready, because you’ll want to make plans to visit us as soon as possible. I mean SOON!
