Remembering the true categorisation above, the Margarita can loosely be categorised as being a Tequila Sour, a Tequila Sidecar or a Tequila Daisy, but it is now such a well-known and popular drink that it has become a category of cocktail in itself with numerous variations.
It even has its own day, Margarita Day which falls on the 22nd February each year.
