Review:

Apricot brandy replaces triple sec in what otherwise follows the same recipe as a classic Margarita (2 tequila, 1 triple sec, 1 lime juice). As with classic Margaritas, depending on tastes you may want to add 2.5ml (half bar spoon) or more agave syrup.

History:

This twist on the Margarita was published in W. J. Tarling's 1937 Cafe Royal Cocktail Book:
"TOREADOR
½ Tequila.
¼ Apricot Brandy.
¼ Fresh Lime or Lemon Juice.
Shake.
"

As well as this Margarita riff, Tarling also lists another drink called a Picador which is identical to the modern-day "Original" Margarita. When considering the origins of the Margarita, it's worth remembering that Tarling's book was published 16 years before the first written reference to a cocktail named Margarita.
