"Fresh lime juice is the secret. I disagree with the bartender who recommends Cuervo -- I've slowly come to believe that the people who order Patron silver margaritas are not idiots wasting fine tequil..." See morea. It's great for margaritas. A cheaper alternative might be Sauva Hornitos. My personal favorite is Herradura, but like the reviewer who is a restaurant owner and bartender, it can be a waste. Good tequila is like good wine, and you don't have to slam it like a college kid to enjoy it."
"As a restaurant owner and bartender I find that using good tequila (over $20) in a margarita is a waste. Any standard Cuervo will do. The key is to use fresh and top shelf ingredients along with it...." See more Fresh lime juice, lime zest, Grand Marnier and Cointreau. Remember....you wouldn't make a Bellini or Champagne cocktail with Dom Perignon!"
