Mmmmm. Margaritas, a subject close to my heart!
Personally, I prefer something in the middle. Not too many words, but tell
me everything about the ingredients. Tell me what KIND of tequila you use
(I don't consider Jose Cuervo Gold premium, but some people might... if
you tell me what kind it is I'll know whether or not I want it)


Commemorativo Margarita....................$
Commemorativo tequila, Cointreau, and freshly squeezed lime juice, shaken
with crushed ice, and rimmed with essence of lime and sea salt.

Gee, now my mouth is watering! :D
