Mama’s Classic Margaritas is about the best margarita recipe there is on the planet. And it is our pleasure to share it with you!
This origins of the recipe come from a dear friend of ours, Vivian, who is Australian, who was performing in the show Cats with me (Kris) in Hamburg, Germany back in the 90s.
Sadly, Viv lost a courageous battle with breast cancer in the mid 2000’s, but we think of her often and every time we whip up a batch of the Mama’s Margaritas, we toast the heavens above us and can feel her smiling down on us.
