History of the Strawberry Margarita
A later story is that the margarita was invented in October 1961, at a party in
Houston, Texas, by party goer Robert James "Rusty" Thomson while acting as bartender.
He concocted a mixture of equal parts tequila, Controy orange liqueur, lime, and crushed ice in a salt-rimmed glass. Strawberries came along soon thereafter!
