The Legend of the Margarita

So one of the legends around how the margarita was invented started with a Bartender and a woman (of course!)

The bartender was in love with a beautiful singer named Margarita. She would perform regular at the bartender’s bar. She loved tequila!

So the bartender created a drink for her with a slice of lime as green as her dress. It was made with the finest tequila the bartender had at his bar. The salt on the rim of the glass represented a halo for her angelic presence.

So the next time you create your perfect margarita think of this story….Maybe there is an inspirational “Margarita” in your life!!!…

 

Margarita Recipe Tip:

Remember the best margaritas tend to have two parts tequila, balanced with one part each of sour and sweet ingredients.

My Passion Mexican Folk Art

 

why i write blogs

 

So I was asked how I got interested in Mexican Folk Art. I have always loved Mexico, even though I grew up in Virginia Beach! I went to the University of Colorado and spent with my roommate one summer in San Miguel De Allende. Our rent was a whopping $68.00 dollars a month and that included a housekeeper who sometimes cooked for us. I took art classes at Instituto Allende.

While in Va Beach I had what I called a Mexican dining room. I would cook Mexican food for my family and friends( the love of Mexican food came from a French babysitter who,took us to our one Mexican Restaurant. She said the hot sauce helped clear her allergies.)

When I moved to California in 1988 my love of Mexico increased tri -fold. I loved going to Tijuana and Rosarito. Through my neighbors I met Ron Slaughter who had traveled extensively through out Mexico locating wonderful Artists. We followed Ron on a 4000 mile trip with Ron meeting artist and filling our truck with treasures.

I opened my store in 1996 and the rest is history!
