“Best recipe I've ever found! As a professional drinking-ista, I've collected my favorite drink recipes from restaurants and bars over the years from around the globe. This comes compliments of Cafe' Iguana in Denver Colorado... home of one of my faves, the Yucatan Margarita. This FRESH mix is the key to any truly good margarita. Life is too short to drink neon yellow store bought sweet and sour mix!”
