Western Reserve Distillers is excited to partner with FOX 8 for Thirsty Thursdays! This week’s featured drink is The Classic Margarita!

The classic margarita is believed to have been invented in the 1930s or 1940s in Mexico, though its exact origins remain uncertain. The traditional recipe calls for a simple blend of tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur (often Triple Sec or Cointreau), served in a salt-rimmed glass. This classic cocktail is widely regarded as a perfect balance of sweet, sour, and salty flavors.
