"I am a margarita hound. Give me a margarita and I am one happy lady. Although I am a perfectly good home bartender, Bill likes to make these for me and keep my glass filled, but we all know he just likes to see me loaded. You can adjust the strength of this drink by changing the amount of lime juices used, but it is important to keep the two amounts of lime juice equal."
