Much research has caused me to determine that most Americans have been led down the 'preverbal' path in the ingredients of a great margarita. We have grown to love lime aid with some added tequila as what we know as a margarita. Hopefully this recipe will help to change that. But, as I always say--to each his/her own. Some will like my recipe and some will not.

Caveat: I am posting this because when I posted some suggestions on here, my comments were deleted and I was barred from commenting. Some other posters who had comments other than just praise for the cook endured the same fate.
