“Adapted from the Reata restaurant in Fort Worth, TX from their cookbook "Reata Legendary Texas Cuisine". These days 50 bucks will just about fill up your tank and we're not only talking gasoline here. You see, Reata's got a $50 margarita that's the best darn indulgence this side of the oil fields. Please don't wait until your well becomes a gusher before you try it. Sometimes just making it to the end of a long hard day is enough of a victory to splurge on this first-class cocktail.”
