My Guy is a big margarita fan, and living a few hours from Mexico, we’ve encountered some great tequilas in local restaurants and during our trips to nearby Puerto Peñasco. The Gran Patron Platinum that’s used as a murder weapon in one of my Det. Lottie King stories is one of the best tequilas around, especially if you like your tequila on the rocks. If I were at Lottie’s retirement party, I would buy her a Peach Margarita like this one. This recipe appears in ROUGH DAY: Detective Lottie King Mystery Short Stories, Vol. 1. Enjoy!
