    Check out this video with Dita Von Teese as Mrs. Margarita Sames who created the original Margarita in 1948!

    Also, in case anyone is concerned what 'one part' means in the above recipe, here are more accurate quantities plus a picture of the cocktail in a real "Margarita" glass (often rimmed with salt) from the Cointreau website.

    I have Margarita glasses too. When I don' use them for cocktails (actually probably more often than not), I use them for gorgeous dessert bowls. Even a scoop of ice-cream somehow looks exotic served up in one of these glasses!

    I also use Margarita glasses for shrimp or seafood cocktails sometimes and if you ever serve a cleansing sorbet between courses, I put the glasses in the freezer so that they frost up when you take them out and then I fill them with tiny balls of sorbet and fresh mint or scented geranium leaves. They look stunning!

    Here are some web pics I found to inspire maybe...
