For sure you know the restaurant-bar Margaritaville here in Cozumel, but maybe some of you don’t know where the name is come from…
In 1977 the singer Jimmy Buffett

margaritaville cozumel spent a month on vacation in Austin, Texas.
He loved to go to a place ” Lung’s Cocina del Sur” where he discovered the cocktail “Margarita”.

He composed a song and named Margaritaville, with lyrics reflecting a laid-back style in a tropical climate and he
included the song in his album : “Changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes”, which reached #1 on the Easy Listening chart, and #13 on the Hot Country chart that year.
It was a success so huge, that Buffett, who also is  a business man, opened his first bar with that name.

The Margaritaville bar in Cozumel , relects precisely that kind of lifestyle.

And using the last verse of it… I could only tell you: ” It was my damn fault!

Tati´s Photo tip:
To photograph cocktails like Margarita´s use clean glasses and pay special attention to the decoration (fruits, umbrella, and straw), the light and background. I like to put the camera on the same level than the glass to avoid weird distortions.
The “Food” program of your point-n-shoot camera can come in handy! Try it
