Classic Margarita

There are many versions how the creation of the classic Margarita came into being. One story is that former silent movie star Marjorie King was on holiday at La Gloria Ranch in Tijuana, Mexico in 1930 and the owner came up with a drink especially for her because according to Marjorie, she was allergic to virtually every spirit, except Tequila!
