Sorry this didn't get posted yesterday, I was having some technical difficulty.

This margarita maker is now on sale at Amazon for $205. To make even larger batches there is a heavy duty machine upgrade...haha!!!! Several people I know have these machines and LOVE them!

Who invented the Margarita you ask??????

Legend has it that in 1938, showgirl Margorie King visited Rosarita Beach in Mexico. She asked bartender, Danny Herrera to pour her a tequila drink because she was allergic to everything else on the menu. Happy to oblige, he splashed some tequila over shaved ice and topped it off with a lemon and triple sec......

There is another account however, that pins the drink on Dallas socialite Margarita Sames, who loved to throw together random drinks for her guests when she entertained. One day she combined tequila, Cointreau and lime juice during a fiesta at her holiday escape home in Acapulco. The story goes that her guests were bewitched and the drink caught on like wildfire in the States.

So next time you are enjoying a margarita in your backyard with your Margaritaville Machine or at your favorite watering have a little story to share!
