Cinco de Mayo Margaritas

Did you know that Cinco de Mayo is more than just a day to up your margarita intake? It actually celebrates the victory of Mexican troops over French forces. You can get a bit more French in your traditional early-spring drinking with the French Margarita. 

The French Margarita fuses the fresh citrus notes with the complexity of cognac found in the Grand Marnier beautifully. If you prefer the classic margaritas, here are some recipes from my book The Complete Book of Mixed Drinks.
