Purchased this book after visiting Maria's in Santa Fe. It's an inexpensive book and it contains a lot of information regarding tequila and margaritas in general. We learned more in the first couple of dozen pages than we ever knew (but maybe we didn't know too much to begin with). We have enjoyed this book and have given it as gifts.

Part of me can understand the negative reviews regarding what some consider to be limited recipe imagination. We felt the same way at first. And I think that's because this book can best be described as one of "traditional" margaritas. But after trying some of the different recipes, it's obvious that a change in ingredients changes the taste. And then you have a different margarita. And in our opinion, for whatever it's worth, that's what makes it interesting. It's all about taste. So go ahead. Don't be shy. Experiment. Our favorite is on page 68.

With that being said, we tried the different citrus recommendations and followed them to a "T". But for our tastebuds (and let's face it, that's all that matters to us), we did not care for them. In the end we are sticking with our favorite, Mr. & Mrs. T Sweet & Sour Mix.

We also very quickly came to the conclusion that if you use a quality tequila you will thank yourself in the morning. We also quickly found that a shaken margarita makes a far superior margarita over a blended, ice-water mess. It's a little more work, but it's well worth it. And you don't have to spend a fortune on a shaker. The stainless steel 'Bullet Cocktail Shaker' holds 24oz. and costs less than $15.

You know what? Saturday night is right around the corner and it's a perfect time to try a new recipe.

Managing to be authoritative without being judgmental, his genuine affection and enthusiasm for tequila and margaritas shines through.

This book has very good chapters regarding the origins of the margarita and about the different types of tequila. But, as far as margarita recipes... well... it's the same recipe over and over substituting different brands of tequila and orange liqueur. The proportions of tequila to liqueur to lemon (or lime) juice are itentical for each "recipe."

But, I must give some credit to the author... he does clearly state on page 30: "Although the mixing procedure is essentially the same for each margarita, the tequila and orange liqueur--or combination of the two--change from recipe to recipe." But, with that said, the whole book could have been reduced to a one-page chart with all of the tequilas listed on the page with "best mixed with" liqueur type listed next to it. Instead, we are treated to a whole book with identical "recipes" where the quantities remain the same, only the tequila brand names and liqueur brand names change.

Regarding the different types of tequila, the author likes to use the example of maple syrup. You have different grades of syrup that all taste different, then there's the syrups that are mixed with corn syrup. True, this is a good analogy for how different tequilas are made (100% agave vs. mixtos), but I think this analogy best fits the recipes in this book! For example, this book is similar to that of a pancake book that lists the same pancake recipe over and over, only the reader is instructed to use a different type of maple syrup for each "recipe." Yup, that's how this book reads!

I have a very good margarita recipe at home, it calls for the use of tequila, sweet & sour mix, Grand Marnier, Cointreau, and fresh orange juice. It makes an excellent margarita! But, there's nothing like it in this book... just the same basic recipe over-and-over-and-over again.

There are other books that are better at explaining how tequila is made and the differences between the brands... I would recommend buying those books to learn about tequila. Once you have a solid underatanding of tequila, then search the Internet and try various recipes.

RECIPES FROM MARIAS ARE THE BEST

I bought this book after visiting Maria's in Santa Fe, NM. They have the best margaritas on the planet! No sugar, no syrup. This book is essentially one recipe with different combinations of fresh lime or lemon, triple sec or Grand Marnier or Cointreu and different tequilas. Proportions are essentially consistent. Some good advice regarding the selection of tequilas, etc. I have had a lot of complements on the margs anyhow!

I am lucky enough to live in Santa Fe and spend time at Maria's in the Cantina working my way through their Margarita list. Now, I can make them at home and I don't need a designated driver!

Love Maria's and really love their margaritas!
Don't waste your money. As a margarita lover, I was hoping for some interesting twists on the classic, including good recipes for the classic. This book is about 40 of the same recipes, only with different tequilas and liqueurs. So, the Cuervo Silver margarita and the Cuervo Gold margarita are two recipes, exactly the same, only one uses silver and one gold. Then, this repeats about 40 times with different brands. I can write just as useful a book in one page: Equal parts tequila and lime, slightly less than an equal part liqueur- you choose the brands. Mix them, let them sit for a while, and there you go.
