Margarita Day the RV Way

By:  Lisa & Dan Brown

22nd Feb, 17


It's been said that the Margarita was invented by Carlos "Danny" Herrera at the Rancho La Gloria (his restaurant) in Mexico around 1938. He concocted this spirited mixture for one of his regular customers, a former Ziegfeld dancing showgirl, Marjorie King. As the legend goes, Marjorie was allergic to every liquor except tequila, which, to further complicate matters, she couldn't drink straight. This is when Herrera came up with this sour concoction and named it the 'Margarita'; the closest Spanish equivalent for Marjorie.

So, let's raise your salt-rimmed glass (or two!) and toast to "Danny" on every February 22nd...NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY and say 'GRACIAS'!!

First things first...


1 oz. Freshly squeezed lime juice

1 oz. Cointreau, Triple Sec or another Orange Liqueur

2 oz. Tequila

Kosher Salt (to rim the glass)

Add ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.

Shake well and strain into a chilled, salt-rimmed cocktail glass, margarita glass or rocks glass filled with fresh ice.

Garnish with a lime wheel.

So now that we have the secret recipe (okay, so it's not so 'secret'), let's share our favorite 'Margarita Moments' since our RV adventures on Liberty (or around...or near...or a short drive away...) On occasion, we will order up a Margarita or two...or five for special occasions like....

...celebrating closing on our home in Kentucky to start our RV adventure in 2014!

Where's our LIME WHEEL????

This was OTR (on the road) in Somewhere, USA

Pssssst, they're not all his...or maybe?
