Product Description

  • Liqueur
  • Let's celebrate the 70th anniversary of the original margarita cocktail
  • The original margarita was created in Acapulco in 1948 by Margaret Sames, known for hosting notoriously lavish parties with extravagant twists. She created a new cocktail for one of her parties by mixing two of her favourite spirits: tequila and Cointreau, a liqueur crafted using sweet and bitter orange peel essences.
  • An immediate success, the drink came to be known as a “Margarita” and has gone on to become a staple.
