The margarita, originating between the 30's ... 40's is a comparative adolescent amongst the classics. There are many creation myths associated with this cocktail but a likely origin is that the margarita is merely a variation of the brandy daisy modified and remade with tequila during the prohibition. Incidentally, margarita is Spanish for daisy.
