The Margarita is a classic cocktail that originated in Mexico in the 1930s. Legend has it that a socialite named Margarita Sames created the drink for her guests at a party in Acapulco, using tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau. The Margarita quickly became a hit and has since been adapted into countless variations.
The addition of whiskey to the Margarita is a modern twist that adds a depth of flavor and complexity to the drink. Whiskey, particularly single malt, has a unique smoky and peaty taste that pairs well with the tartness of lime juice and sweetness of agave syrup.
These Margaritas with whiskey and tequila are perfect for any occasion, whether you’re sipping them on a sunny afternoon with friends or serving them up at a backyard BBQ. They also make a great addition to a Cinco de Mayo celebration or a festive Spring brunch.
