It is difficult to track down the exact beginnings of the Margarita cocktail. There are several stories… All completely different… Connecting the Margarita to its Mexican origins. Legends do point to it being originated in the late 1930’s and Jose Cuervo was known to have run the first advertisement for the Margarita in 1945.

The basic Margarita ingredients consist of: Tequila, Triple Sec and Lime Juice served in a salt-rimmed glass. Variations of this theme along with the use of various qualities of liquor can impact the flavor and consistency of the Margarita … For better or worse.

We all have our favorite recipe and/or watering hole to enjoy these delicious concoctions. For a new and very bold twist on this traditional drink, Wild Rita’s Mexican restaurant in Louisville has gone the extra mile in creating their signature “Wild Rita.”

The one and only "Wild Rita" is made “au natural” with 100% Agave, Jose Cuervo Traditional Silver Tequila, Grand Marnier, freshly squeezed lime juice and natural agave. (No syrup used here!) To make it even bolder and over the top, the Wild Rita margarita is set on fire at the table as you’re being served! Certainly unforgettable and it tastes even better than it sounds…Or looks!
