I need a drink! Margarita

Of course I’ve been drinking! I’ve just not actually had any of my favourite drinks to hand, and while I could write from memory, that would be cheating. Besides, a drink has to be truly special to get into the ‘I need a drink!’ database. Thus enters a classic cocktail; the Margarita.

To get the ball rolling here’s a great beer from the Sharp’s Brewery in Cornwall: Doom Bar.
