Vacations and margaritas go together like limes and tequila. Whether you like yours “blended & frozen,” or “on the rocks,” this classic cocktail is a popular staple of any beach vacation. Anyone who loves a good marg will tell you, there’s simply nothing worse than a weak margarita, and oftentimes, using a top shelf tequila is key to getting it right.
