Cocktail Friday: Margaritas!

February 24, 2017
Author: Kelly Elarbee
Its Cocktail Friday here at The Specialist Works US and we are celebrating with margaritas! National Margarita Day 2017 took place on the 22nd, but we are keeping up the holidays spirit by continuing on through the week. National Margarita Day was founded by Todd McCalla to spread his love for margaritas around the world. 

The classic margarita was invented during the 1930s or 1940s in Mexico. There are many different theories of when and how exactly the recipe was created, but no matter the case we are thankful it came to be! Frozen margaritas were later invented in the 1970s in Dallas when a bartender converted a soft serve ice cream unit into a frozen margarita machine. Whether you prefer a classic margarita on the rocks, straight up, or frozen, its the most common tequila-based cocktail in the United States today. 

The day is meant for friendships and fun. Its Friday! Grab your co-workers and enjoy a nice cold margarita over delightful conversation to kick-start the weekend. 

Want to make your own to celebrate? 

 3.5 cL (7 parts) tequila
2 cL (4 parts) Triple Sec
1.5 cL (3 parts) lime juice

Preparation: Rub the rim of the glass with the lime slice to make the salt stick to it. The salt should stay on the rim and never mix into the cocktail. Shake the other ingredients with ice, then carefully pour into the glass.
