Theories are varied about how Margaritas were first originated. Some say that the first Margarita was mixed in Juárez, Chihuahua by Francisco “Pancho” Morales in 1942. Others believe the real inventor of this impeccable drink is Margarita Sames as she concocted this for her guests in her vacation home in 1948. Another common story is the cocktail was actually invented by head bartender Santos Cruz for his favorite singer Peggy (Margaret) Lee and named the drink after her Spanish version of name – Margarita.   

Fun Fact #2: Margarita Actually Means “Daisy” In Spanish!

Margarita is named after this beautiful flower? It might surprise you but it’s actually not! “Daisy” – a refreshingly tart cocktail with a slightly sweet undertone, is an old drink dated back to mid-1800s. This cocktail includes a spirit as a base, sugar with some citrus for a bit of sour taste. Many believe that Margaritas are inspired by this special cocktail as it is basically a tequila Daisy.


Fun Fact #3: What Is That Salted Rim Used For?

No matter how many variations there are, you probably hardly see a Margarita without its salted rim. The salt actually plays an important role to enhance the whole experience of this much-loved cocktail as it brings out the sweet and sour flavors and reduce the bitterness of the tequila. Furthermore, salt can intensify the aroma of Margarita, making it a more flavorful treat. 


Fun Fact #4: The Most Expensive Margarita In The World?

Would you be willing to pay $1200 for a glass of Margarita? It was in 2013 when the most expensive Margarita in the world was concocted at 230 FIFTH Rooftop Bar & Penhouse Lounge in Manhattan. This frozen delicacy was made using the most high-end ingredients with the tequila alone costs up to $1800 per bottle while its ice was made from a $450 bottle of Lois Roederer Cristal Champagne. Finally, the drink was poured into Ralph Lauren hand-blown Hungarian crystal glass! Half the money of this was donated to a charity afterwards. 


Fun Fact #5: The World First Frozen Margaritas Were Only Invented Around 50 Years Back!

Click here to view Margarita Image Cre:

A world without frozen Margaritas? Yes, it was what happened before 1971! The first frozen Margarita machine was invented in Texas by a school dropout named Mariano Martinez. The 26-year-old restaurateur had an immense trouble creating the frozen drinks for customers at that time. The cocktails were time-consuming and easily melted! Inspired by the soft-serve ice cream machine, Mariano came across the idea to make a customized one for Margaritas and this machine can now be found all over the world! 


If you love to unwind with this incredible cocktail, here is a quick guide on where to find it in Klang Valley!
Want to celebrate Margarita week? Head to Chambers Bar at Hilton Kuala Lumpur for special Margarita event from 18th – 24th February to enjoy a variety of Margarita mixes or come to FOOK from 22nd February – 2nd March to relish special hand-crafted Margaritas from RM30!

Not only loved for their creative cocktails (such as the Zhu Ba Jie cocktail for CNY 2019 celebration), the restaurant also offers a variety of Asian Oriental delights with a twist.

Of course, I also took this chance to find out 3 dishes that diners are most interested in when they come here!

1/ Signature Ulam Quinoa Served with Beef Rendang and Fried Squid

The first dish – Signature Ulam Quinoa Served with Beef Rendang and Fried Squid, is the epitome of “Asian Oriental delights with a twist”! This authentic Asian dish is ingeniously prepared with a combination of fine ingredients including 7 herbs, dried shrimps, onions, ginger, coconut served with pickled cucumbers and omelette. The Angus Beef Rendang was skillfully cooked to make it fork-tender while the fried squid pleased my taste buds with its crunchy texture – ideal to mingle with the refreshing Ulam Quinoa.

The house-made spaghettini is meticulously crafted and cooked in a fragrant coconut broth with spices and ingredients like dried shrimps, chicken, tofu puffs and more! The salmon fillet on top absorbed the curry base and to my surprise, it was not flaky at all. Rich in flavors with a touch of moderate spiciness, this dish is something you just cannot miss out.

Weekly Reads: 5 Interesting Facts You Might Not Know About Tapas

Originated from Spain, tapas are now presented in restaurants from all over the world in the form of small plates, snacks or appetizers. From a bowl of olives to creative tapas with a peculiar touch, tapas are undeniably loved by many! While some may think tapas are just smaller versions of foods, they are actually more than that! Check out 5 interesting facts you might not know about these world-famous delicacies. 

1/ Tapas mean “cover”

Image Cre: Cicchetti Di Zenzero 

Did you know “tapa” literally means “cover”? Many believe that in the beginning, tapas were merely pieces of bread that were placed over a glass just to keep the flies away. It is said that during the 10th century, Spanish King – Alfronso, had a severe illness and all he could eat were small bites of foods with wine. Once recovered, the King declared that wine can’t be served without a small bite of food and there came the flourish of tapas in Spanish bars!  


2/ Tapas used to be free and were simple dishes like almonds or olives!

Image Cre: aborigenbarcelona 

Nowadays you can see tapas in various shapes and styles; however, when they were first originated, tapas were actually foods that required little to no preparation. As free snacks for drinking occasions, these small dishes can be as simple as a hunk of bread, a dish of olives, almonds or milk cheese! After Spain came in contact with other countries, tapas also started to evolve as bar owners had strived to come up with new ideas for tapas to stand out from the rest. 


3/ Tapeo – The Art Of Eating Tapas

Image Cre: proper-spanish-tapas 

Spanish tapas are sumptuous yet the tapas concept is actually not only based on the food itself! Tapeo – the art of eating tapas, is simply the gathering of people to share and socialize. In Spain, it has become a part of the Spanish way of living – sharing memories and hour-long conversations with their family members and friends over a glass of wine or beer together with delicious tapas. Come to a tapas bar and you will be likely to see a lively ambience filled with laughter because after all, tapas connect people! 

4/ Tapas are varied in different regions. 

Image Cre: Sentidos Gastrobar – The Latin Grill

While you may think that tapas are just the same all over Spain, they are actually more varied than you thought. Different regions have their own specialties and even their own stories! Come to the North for their famous mini toasts with scrumptious toppings, to the central and Southern Spain to taste Iberican Ham and Chorizo and head to the coastal South for fish tapas! Each city also has its iconic tapas such as Barcelona and their renowned Patatas Bravas (Spicy Potatoes). 


5/ There is something called Japas! 

Click here to view Babe's JapasImage Cre: Babe 

Inspired by tapas and traditional Japanese cuisine, Japas dining is one of the concepts that have quickly won the hearts of diners. Exceptionally versatile and has more to offer than sushi, Japas can re-interpret familiar foods into new creations. These bite-sized delicacies are usually made from the best-quality tuna, duck breasts and finest ingredients. In Kuala Lumpur, you can pay a visit to Babe or Kikubari, located in Damansara Heights, for special Japas filled with whimsy and wonderment.
