How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glas.

Garnish:

Lime zest twist

Comment:

Apricot brandy replaces triple sec in what otherwise follows the same recipe to a classic Margarita.

Origin:

This twist in the Margarita was published in W. J. Tarling's 1937 'Cafe Royal Cocktail Book', 16 years before the first written reference to a Margarita. He also lists another drink called a Picador which is identical to the later Margarita.
