The Frozen Margarita is one of the most popular variations of The Original Margarita.

The Original Margarita was created in 1948 when Dallas socialite Margarita Sames mixed her two favorite spirits, Cointreau and tequila, together with lime juice while vacationing in Acapulco. This original recipe has stood the test of over 70 years' time. As Margarita Sames said, "A Margarita without Cointreau is not worth its salt."
