Patrón Tequila elevates the cocktail fixture

As one of the world’s most popular cocktails, the margarita has become a fixture in the cocktail world whether it’s enjoyed on a night out or at home. Margaritas are enjoyed by many drinkers because of its refreshing finish and delicious notes. This spirit usually contains three essential ingredients – tequila, orange liqueur, and citrus juice, but can also include other ingredients to give the classic recipe a twist such as sweet fruits, other souring agents, some spiced, and bitters to fit one’s preferences and elevate the experience. Classic Margaritas are usually shaken and served either straight up in a coupe glass with salt on the rim or blended with ice and served frozen. 

The margarita takes its name from the Spanish word for ‘daisy,’ and traces its origins in the 1930s in Mexico. Iowa newspaper editor James Graham wrote about finding the recipe for the cocktail in Tijuana, Mexico. Worldwide, Margarita Day is celebrated every Feb. 22. Patrón Tequila invites everyone to further enjoy this beloved cocktail using only the best ingredients.

The heart of every margarita recipe is the tequila, both having its DNA deeply rooted in Mexican culture and heritage. What better way is there to elevate your Margarita than to enjoy it with the ultra premium Patrón Tequila.
