This illustration by Lotza depicts the famous Margarita cocktail, a classic mixology drink made with tequila, lime juice and orange liqueur.
The history of the Margarita is shrouded in mystery and many anecdotes, but the most common one is that the cocktail was created in the 1930s or 1940s in the Mexican city of Tijuana. According to this story, a young woman named Margarita ordered a cocktail at a local bar and the bartender, not knowing what to serve her, improvised the mixture of tequila, lime juice and triple sec that we know today.
Other stories suggest that the Margarita was created by a Texas bartender in the 1940s, or that the cocktail was invented by Americans on vacation in Mexico in the 1930s.
Whatever its exact origin, there’s no denying that the Margarita has become a classic of Mexican culture and global mixology, with many creative variations and new ingredients added over the years. And this illustration by Lotza perfectly represents the festive and sunny atmosphere associated with this iconic cocktail. You can discover our Drinks/Cocktails collection here !
