Thursday February 22nd marks International Margarita Day and to celebrate, the Hunters Hill Hotel is offering a special Daisy Margarita.
This cocktail’s name stems from one of the ‘fabled’ origins of the margarita. On a hot summer’s day in Acapulco a Dallas socialite, Margarita Sames was challenged by her friends to create a refreshing drink, after many failed attempts she came up with the Margarita. The word for Margarita in Spanish is ‘Daisy’ and the colour is resemblant of her flowing summer dress.
