How to Make a Margarita de Fresa
National Margarita Day is coming up. (February 22, to be exact.) What better way to celebrate the cocktail—usually made with triple sec, tequila, and lime juice—than learning a different way to make it? Well, not really that different. Just with strawberries AKA margarita de fresa.
All you need is some tequila, lime juice, frozen strawberries, and some agave nectar. For our take, we're using Patrón Silver which is a white spirit made from 100 percent Weber Blue Agave, carefully distilled in small batches at Hacienda Patrón distillery in Jalisco, Mexico.
A Little Background
It wouldn't be right to drink and make a marg while celebrating National Margarita Day without knowing the cocktail's history. We wish we could give you a straight answer, but the history of the tequila-based drink is hazy. There are numerous origin stories. The most widely accepted story is that bartender and restaurant owner Carlos "Denny" Herrera came up with the drink in 1938 for a female customer who was allergic to alcohol except for tequila. We'll leave it at that.
