    The bartender gets the drinks mixed up. Can’t remember which is which. It’s a different kind of mix than mixing drinks. Pretty bad for a bartender. He probably doesn’t make much in tips.

    From: “The Bartender’s Bible” by Gary Regan

    Daiquiri

    1 1/2 ounces light rum
    1 ounce lime juice
    1 teaspoon superfine sugar

    In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the rum, lime juice, and sugar.
    Shake well.
    Strain into a cocktail glass.

    The book cites a story about malaria, Daiquiri, Cuba, the towns’ doctors, and American mining engineers for this drink.

    Margarita (the original; or as original as these things get)

    2 teaspoons coarse salt
    1 lime wedge
    2 ounces tequila
    1/2 ounce Cointreau or triple sec
    1 1/2 ounces lime juice

    Place the salt in a saucer.
    Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with the lime wedge and dip the glass into the salt to coat the rim thoroughly; reserve the lime wedge.
    In a shaker half filled with ice cubes, combine the tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice.
    Shake well.
    Strain into the cocktail glass.
    Garnish with reserved lime wedge.

    I’ll let you do the analysis, dear reader.

    What Bev and Varnes said….
    it’s like…. he can mix you up a daiquiri….


    but when he mixes you up with another customer, he gets your order wrong.


    Or he can mix you up a Margarita…
    but he’d better not mix up the recipes.

    Reminds me of the joke (told by a woman): a man’s brain is like concrete – thoroughly mixed, and permanently set.

    A doctor walks into a bar after a long day of surgery, and order’s a daiquiri. Bartender asks “What kind?” The doctor replies, “Surprise me” So the bartender mixes up a drink and hands it to the doctor. The doctor is so beat that he takes a long drink without even looking at it. He immediately spits it out along with several small chunks of wood. “What on earth is this?” asks the doctor. Bartender replies “It’s a hickory daiquiri Doc.”

    Pseudo Cliff Clavin: " It’s an interesting history of margaritas. Created originally by two women named Margaret and Rita to put salt in the wounds of their boyfriends, Dack and Quarry, who don’t come into the history until much later…….."
