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.
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.
