When you taste one of these margaritas, you will understand that they were made the old way, by hand, no prefabricated mixes that you find in a 7-11 convenient store. This is the real deal. This is how margaritas were made a hundred years ago. Perhaps Pancho Villa had a pitcher of these when he decided to declare war on the United States. I don't know but I think that when you try them, you will think that perhaps you've finally found Eldorado. I've said it before and I'll say it again, "I don't always drink Margaritas, but when I do they are made this way..." Enjoy responsibly.
