Since when is this wondrous, corrupting potion of tequila and lime supposed to taste like spiked Snapple Fruit Punch? Margaritas are supposed to have the sting of a love bite that leads to delicious contrition. So enough with the frozen machines, the tropical-juice additives, and the bogus salt rim. Arouse devilish temptation. And let an angel guide you. Or better yet, let Angela, who happens to be the bartender who concocts the house Real Madd Margarita with Patron Silver, fresh lime, Cointreau, and Grand Marnier. The result is not only a bracing complement to Maroons' excellent deep-southern and Jamaican specialties but also an icy surefire elixir for whatever you're starting.
