Best things to do in Sydney this weekend (4th-6th March)

Where to find the best margaritas in Sydney

Much dispute has arisen over who exactly created one of the most famous and endearing cocktails in the world, the classic margarita. Many say it first popped up around 1938 when bartender Carlos “Danny” Herrera dreamed up the cocktail for a dancer named Marjorie King, who claimed she was allergic to all spirits except Tequila, prompting Herrera to build on the elements of a traditional tequila shot with salt and lime to create a refreshing, palatable drink. Other origin stories say the drink wasn’t created until 10 years later, when a wealthy socialite named Margarita Sames just randomly whipped up her namesake for some guests, one of whom was Tommy Hilton who would go on to add the drink to the bar menu across his well-known hotel chain. However, the Sames story clashes with the claim in The Complete Book of Spirits that Anthony Dias Blue, the first importer of Jose Cuervo in the U.S, advertised with the tagline “Margarita: it’s more than a girl’s name” in 1945, which is three years before Sames apparently created this drink. We may never know the true origin of the drink, but one thing is for sure; Margaritas have remained a reference point for cocktail recipes which go on to stand the test of time, so much so that a day exists to celebrate the mix; that day is today, Monday 22nd February....
