Did you know the most requested cocktail throughout the state of Texas is the margarita? Did you also know that Texans prefer their margaritas with a touch of citrusy orange, and they call it a Texas Margarita. There are many versions of orange-infused Texas Margaritas, but this one adds that necessary orange flair with a little orange liqueur and a touch of fresh prepared orange juice. It's a great cocktail, but you might want to limit yourself to just two. Just saying.
