    Notes

    *The recipe is from Mexico, the Cookbook. It indicates to use 1 ½ tablespoons of syrup. I adjusted it to my own taste and to suit my homemade syrup recipe. You can buy the natural syrup at your local supermarket or make the above recipe the way I do it at home. You will have enough syrup to make 8 margaritas or reserve it to sweeten your tea or favorite drinks.
