Classic Margarita

Margaritas hold a dear place in my family’s heart. Not only have we used my grandfather’s award-winning recipe at Casa Vega since 1956 but my father also wanted to name me Margarita, the Mexican equivalent of Margaret. Thankfully, my mom talked sense into him and made the point the daughter of Casa Vega can not be named Margarita. I may not be named after this special drink but the story will always make me smile.
