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).

History:

This twist on 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.
