The Margarita is Born at the Kentucky Bar

The Margarita was born just steps from the US border. It didn’t happen in any of the beach towns where we drink them today or in the Florida Keys at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville. Nope. It happened in Juarez. and the bar also have a Certificate, told us the story.

Legend states that during prohibition, a time when many Americans crossed the border to legally drink , a women sitting at the bar simply asked for a drink. She asked the bartender to make something, anything. He decided to mix tequila with the limes and salt (always a good idea) add some ice, shake and serve.
