Even though the margarita was the seventh most popular cocktail of 2017, the origins of the favored fiesta-time drink are crazy mysterious. Some think it originated in the U.S. in the ’40s as a variation on the Daisy cocktail, as margarita’s Spanish for “daisy.” Others think it was invented in Mexico by a bartender for Margarita Henkel, a German ambassador’s daughter. All we know for sure is that we love this cocktail, and these five gorgeous takes on it.
