The story behind the drink

As befits any cocktail with a hundred years of history, the Margarita’s provenance is unclear. Tijuanan restaurateur Carlos ‘Danny’ Herrera claimed to have created the drink in the 1940s for a dancer, Marjorie King. However, it's thought that the Margarita – or ‘Daisy’ – was already being widely consumed in Mexico’s major cities a decade earlier and was possibly first served there by an Irish bartender called Madden. In any case, by the mid 50s, a California-based José Cuervo distributor was promoting tequila in the US using a printed Margarita recipe. The cocktail has held its ground remarkably well in the intervening years, sparking dozens of variations. Our own version – the Kumquat Margarita – offers a playful citrusy twist on this Mexican classic. It’s the perfect choice for a seasonal party and an ideal partner for spicy nibbles.

The ingredients

Our Kumquat Margarita is made with El Rayo tequila, which takes its name from Mexican folklore, with tales of a great bolt of lightning – El Rayo – striking the blue agave in the hills near Tequila. We use their Plata tequila, which perfectly captures the vibrant flavours of Mexico’s majestic blue agave plant. Herbal aromas give way to bright citrus notes warmed by a hint of peppery spice. We pair this with a fruity, citrus-forward fair-trade Kumquat liqueur from Fair, made with antioxidant rich Kumquats grown in Southeast Asia. The palate offers notes of mandarin, orange juice and grapefruit, with hints of orange blossom lingering in the finish. To complete the drink we add fresh lime juice.
