Tequila was a later addition to the bartender's tool kit. Classic cocktails made with tequila are barely a handful, but one of them is royalty. The Margarita may not have a distinct origin story, but it does have a distinct flavor that makes it a staple in any bar you go to. #100DaysOfCocktails looks at one of the descendants of the Daisy (Day 10).
The Daisy is a class of cocktail all its own. It is very similar to a Fix, with the only difference being the sweetening syrup you use. Professor Jerry Thomas used orange liqueur and gum syrup. Later recipes call for grenadine or raspberry syrup. #100DaysOfCocktails used the grenadine, and the flavor is outstanding.
