We love these margaritas, they are made with premium liquor and are not too tart. Careful, they do not taste strong, but are. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This refreshing margarita recipe truly lives up to its name. Premium liquor really makes a difference in this case. It's sweet with just the right amount of tartness mixed in. They taste very smooth. So be careful while drinking... they'll sneak up on you. Cheers! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
