Margaritas con Naranja (Margaritas with Orange)

Ice cold margaritas long have been the cocktail of choice to sip with Mexican food. The tequila this drink is made with is a distilled spirit from the Agave tequilana plant, named for the town of Tequila near Guadalajara. Allow time for the lime to impart its flavor before mixing the margaritas.
