Hussong's Cantina - birthplace of the margarita

Hussong's Cantina - birthplace of the margarita (StreetView)
This 1892 bar's primary claim to fame is as the birthplace of the margarita. The cocktail was supposedly invented in October 1941 by Hussong’s bartender Don Carlos Orozco, who had been experimenting with various concoctions and tested one out on a German ambassador’s daughter who visited the cantina, Margarita Henkel. She enjoyed the experimental libation, and it was named after her. Hussong’s remains the commonly accepted home of the margarita.
