This simple syrup margarita is the best of the best. The ingredients may be basic but when combined they create the ideal drink. Just throw together tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and ice before straining into a prepared glass. Garnish with a lime wheel for a nice finish. Now sit back, relax, and drink away! Thank Las Almas Rotas in Dallas for this delicious simple syrup margarita.
