Here is a question for you.  What makes the frozen margarita happy hour so popular?  Because a margarita is a refreshing cocktail when it gets hot, that’s why!   Also, it is a tasty, icy, thirst quenching drink that will cool you down in the Arizona 100+ degree summer heat.

However, there is a possible downside to enjoying this beverage.  That is, after drinking several of these tasty frozen drinks, you might possibly want to don a sombrero and start singing with a mariachi band.  Think about it.  It could happen.  Joking aside, for whatever the reason, these frozen tequila drinks are my favorite.

Tidbits about the Margarita

First, this simple cocktail is made with tequila, orange liqueur (like Curacao, Triple Sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier), lime juice and shaved ice or ice cubes.  I’ll bet you already knew that.

But, did you know that the Spanish word margarita translates to the English word daisy?  A cocktail historian by the name of David Wondrich believes the margarita is just a remake of the Brandy Daisy using tequila versus brandy.

If you like flavors, several margarita fruit varieties are popular, like mango, peach, strawberry and melon.

Bet you did not know that the first frozen margarita machine was invented on May 11, 1971, by Mariano Martinez in Dallas Texas.  Mariano used a  “soft serve” ice cream machine for his frozen margarita idea.  Don’t you know the idea caught on.  Mariano’s original machine now sits in the Smithsonian National Museum of History.  Go figure.
