People everywhere are drinking tequila -- from the best-known brands to the rarer tequilas revered by connoisseurs. As the most popular tequila cocktail, the margarita has survived numerous nips and tucks to retain its fierce identity. In Margaritas and Other Tequila Cocktails, Ben Reed reveals that all you need in order to create a delicious margarita is good-quality tequila, lime, and orange-flavored liqueur. Yet within the boundaries of these vital ingredients, you can make your margarita taste quite unique. Try the recipes at the beginning of the book and discover how the type of tequila, the choice of sour, the brand of sweetener, and the ratio of all three, influence the final fantastic flavor. Once you've mastered the classics, Ben takes your tastebuds on a magical exploration of the Flavored Margaritas -- from a Mangorita to a Prickly Pear, there's a flavorsome margarita to suit all tastes. Or try the Substitutions -- well-known cocktails with a tequila-twist such as the Tequila Colada and Tequilini. The perfect thing to get the party going, or for your own private enjoyment, the margarita captures the spirit of fiesta.
