The margarita is a Mexican cocktail that has conquered palates around the world.
The original mix is composed of two parts of tequila, one part orange liqueur and half of lemon juice. The ingredients are stirred well in a mixer glass with ice and serve in a glass frosted with salt… (I can already feel the bittersweet hit with the first sip and its salt on my lips). The margarita is, thus, a unique cosmopolitan cocktail of incomparable flavor, versatile and easy to prepare; characteristics that, over time, have resulted in different variants and delicious cocktail.
