Celebrity trainer, Jillian Michaels, recently said Dallas should stop drinking so many margaritas. She might as well tell us to stop breathing.

Originally just tequila and lime juice, the margarita dates back to 1924 and didn’t make its way to the United States until Cointreau introduced it in 1962. Dallasites have been making up for lost time ever since. Whether it’s the tried and true margarita, or a newly concocted variation, we’re inviting the best margaritologists to compete to find the best margarita in Dallas at the fourth annual Dallas Margarita Meltdown.    Continue reading

Galveston Entrepreneur Puts Margaritas In The Bag

IMG_3053Lt. Blender AKA Ralph McMorris

by Andrew Chalk

This is Ralph McMorris, better known as Lt. Blender. He got that name because, when he served in the U.S. Army, he was the only one with a blender during one tour of duty. When it broke, he improvised by making margaritas in a bag. That made him very popular. He parlayed his drink making skills into Lt. Blender’s drink mixes. In case you think that an entrepreneur’s life consists solely of jetting around in private planes like one of the Sharks, ask Mark Cuban what it was like when he started, selling door-to-door. Or Barbara Corcoran what it was like waiting tables in NYC. In a similar vein, below is Lt. Blender’s one and only production facility. It is situated in a Victorian house near the Galveston historic district.     Continue reading
