Margarita is a popular drink that comes from Mexico. Who and when invented this cocktail is not known exactly. There are several sources that can be combined into one and say that it was created by a bartender for a woman, and named it after her name. Another source says that it was made to create a more civilized way to drink tequila (instead of licking the salt and bite of lime quarter).
