You’ll be able to’t make a fantastic margarita with out contemporary lime juice and 100% agave tequila or mezcal. My typical go-to is a blanco tequila, like G4 Blanco or Fortaleza Blanco, or Banhez Mezcal Artesanal. To tie all of it collectively, a pleasant orange curacao. My favourite is Pierre Ferrand’s Dry”
