Ok, so I am wanting to put together a margarita kit for someone who really loves them, as a gift. I need some advice on ingredients. Mainly the alcohol.
First Tequila - what kind? I know there is a separate tequila thread, but it seems mostly focused on sipping, so I want advice specifically tuned to margaritas. Do you prefer anejo? Blanco? And why? Also, even though it is part of a margarita kit, it is for someone who really loves tequila straight too, so I want it to be a good sipping beverage as a very important secondary goal.
Second - orange liqueur. Cointreu and Grand Marnier seem to be the ones of choice for spiffy margaritas. Preferences? Other suggestions?
Anything I'm forgetting? (Yeah, limes, I know.)
