Italian Margarita

Italian Margarita

Most restaurants and bars in California serve pretty good Margaritas. There are endless delightful variations combining fruits and different liquors with the traditional Tequilla and we tasted our fair share living here. The last time we meet for Happy Hour on the Pier at Moby Dick Restaurant we both ordered their house special Italian Margarita which included Amaretto. It was refreshingly delicious and the bartender kindly gave us the recipe. Of course the Amaretto made it taste just like Italy…
