The Frozen Margarita Begins In Dallas
With $500 in hand and a small business loan, Mariano Martinez opened Mariano's Hacienda restaurant in East Dallas. The restaurant would go on to change the way America drinks one of our favorite cocktails. In 1971, after stopping into a 7-Eleven for his morning coffee, the Slurpee machine sparked an idea that will live on forever!
