Margaritas

Standard margaritas blend fresh lime juice, orange liqueur, and tequila in way that balances sweet, sour, and salty sensations against Mexico’s most famous spirit. Tequila is the foundation of margaritas. The festive cocktail goes well with all sorts of savory and spicy foods, especially Mexican dishes.
