How can you call tequila and limeade a Margarita?
Is tequila and lemonade a Margarita?
NO! A bartender created the Margarita a long time ago. They created a recipe and chose a name for THEIR drink.
I understand that Buzzwords like Margarita, Martini, and Mojito are great drink menu attention grabbers, but we need to respect their creativity.
Hey Partida! here's one for you. Why don't you call thus extremely tasty drink a Parditarita! That way you reference the magnificent Margarita, but are not co-opting the name of this historic drink just because you hope to sell more tequila.
" Hey bartender, I'd like a Jack and Coke, but would you please use Captain Morgan. "
"Hey buddy, why don't you just order a Capt. and Coke?"
"Why, because I love saying the word Jack!"
I make a very tasty drink called Acapulco Sunshine. It has tequila, agave nectar, lime juice, orange and mango juice, with a dash of bitters muddled with fresh basil.
People who love tequila don't need to hear the word Margarita to decide to order a tequila cocktail.
After all it 's your fine tequila that sells itself.
It's Parti da Time!
