You could call it a Tequila Daisy. The Daisy was a popular pre-prohibition era cocktail usually made with brandy. This explanation of the Margarita’s origin is the one we like best, (shout out to Dave Wonderich and the folks at Barsmarts for telling us about it!) and there’s a good number of other stories that could explain it. But considering that since Margarita is the Spanish word for “daisy” this is a likely one. By any name though, the Margarita is the most popular cocktail in American bars, 185,000 of them are ordered every hour.
