However you like your margarita, there is a twist to satisfy in this perfect companion to mixing with that most legendary of spirits - tequila. From roguish beginnings in rural Mexico, tequila now graces the most elegant of cocktail bars and is used in a huge array of cocktails, of which the margarita is king. All you need to create a delicious Classic margarita is a good-quality tequila, orange-flavoured liqueur, and lime. And yet within the boundaries of these 3 basic ingredients you can create a huge variety of flavours, from Premium margaritas using celebrated rare tequilas, to the fruity Flavoured Mangorita or Prickly Pear.
