Fresh Pressed Daisy

Happy Thirsty Thursday Everyone

This week we are bringing you an alcoholic staple that we all love. The Margarita!

 

The exact origin of the Margarita is a mystery, but there are many claims that date back to the late 30s early 40s. The belief is that it evolved from a familiar drink back in the day called the “Daisy”. The Daisy is a combination of alcohol, citrus juice and grenadine over ice. People enjoyed their Daisies with all forms of alcohol, but the tequila Daisy became a popular hit. It eventually became known by its Spanish name, Margarita.

 

Now, we must remember that no margarita is possible without our good old friend, TEQUILA! Someone once told me that tequila was the “Nectar of the Gods”, and they weren’t 100% lying. Now I’m not sure which god or gods you do or don’t believe in so that I can’t guarantee. However, Tequila is made from the Blue Agave plant, which also produces a delicious nectar (perfect substitute as a sweetener for all your sweetened needs). There are 7 steps to making tequila, but from what I understand, tequila making is an art. It’s secrets and traditions are passed on from family member to family member, adding personal flair and uniqueness to each brand.

 

the first step is Harvesting.

 

second is Cooking

 

third is Extraction

 

fourth is Fermentation

 

fifth is Distillation

 

sixth is Aging.

 

and last but not least Bottling.

 

After completing all phases it is ready to be on its way to us to make all our cloths fall off.

 

The Margarita has made its way into our hearts, homes, and even established its own hypothetical City. They make all our Mondays better, our happy hours crazier, and our tacos tastier.  Weather you like yours traditional, frozen, or fruity it’ll always be 5 o’clock somewhere!
