If Dallas had an official drink, it would be the margarita.
Not just because we have so many of them worthy of distinction, but because in 1971 restauranteur Mariano Martinez invented the frozen margarita. (Don’t believe us, just check the Smithsonian which has the first one displayed among its archives.) While we may not be home of tequila, we’ve been perfecting what to do with it ever since.
