In the mid 1940’s the queen of cocktails made her new home in the beautiful port of Ensenada.  During this time there was a renowned bartender, Mr. David Negrete Covarrubias, who wanted to make the perfect drink for her friend, but wanted to keep the salt separate from the other ingredients.  David took the martini glass, squeezed an ounce of lime, added an ounce and a half of tequila, 3/4s of an ounce of Orange liquor and poured it into a glass with salt along the rim.  This was the first time the famous “Margarita” was served.
