“There was a time when a state of mind could be defined or cured by a good martini. It was a benchmark for a good time, a good lunch, a good date, a great place…. No more. Now, more often than not, in more places than most, that American measuring stick has given way to the new king: The Margarita. I don’t know where or when or even how this started. I just know it’s here.”
-Robert Redford, Actor, film producer and founder of Sundance Resort.
Taken from The Great Margarita Book by Al Lucero, owner of Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen, Santa Fe.
"...this 'true institution' continues to produce 'green corn tamales straight from heaven' and the 'best, strongest margaritas in LA' after over 75 years 'these guys have got it down!'...."
