When Owners traveled through the American Southwest, they stopped by a Mexican cantina, where they discovered the taste of Margarita.  As soon as they returned from the trip, they started to gather ingredients for Margarita from local vendors.  It was a bit of disappointment to find that it is very difficult to stock Margarita fixings in the area.  However, owners have overcome this difficulty by innovating the Dandelion Inn original Margarita which employs local materials.  
Please try and let us know what you think.  Cheers!
