Review:

To quote a "long time Californian and frequent visitor to America's Southwest", this recipe is a classic Margarita but "with a few tweaks. Usually a silver/blanco tequila; lemons sometimes because flavor is more consistent year-round" and "falernum to add a subtle, bit more complex sweetness, with ginger, lime, and spice notes."

History:
