History of the drink
The Spanish word for "daisy" is "margarita." The daisy's flower head closes at night and opens in the morning, which is said to be a perversion of the word 'day's eye'. And it's likely that the Margarita since the 1930's is a tequila-based Daisy - a family of Victorian-era drinks created with citrus juice and sweetened with syrup or liqueur, and then strengthened with alcohol.
