Margarita (A Traditional Recipe)
You will notice that this recipe includes two optional elements, a teaspoon of simple syrup, and a splash of soda. I often add both elements especially if I have friends over who do not consume tequila regularly. The touch of sweetness and the splash of soda often makes the taste of the Margarita cocktail more suitable to a larger variety of palates.
