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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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).
