    AmandaMcG's Note:

    Top Secret Recipe Version, from Todd Wilbur. The rim of the glass on the real thing is dipped in green sugar crystals usually used for cake decorating. It can be skipped if you don't feel like buying it.

    Garnish

    Optional

    • green sugar crystals

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Moisten the rim of a margarita glass and dip it in green sugar crystals. Or skip this step if you prefer.
    2. 2
      Fill the glass with ice. Add tequila, triple sec, and sweet and sour mix.

      ( I don't know if you are supposed to add the amaretto to the drink once it is served, but whenever I go to Olive Garden I mix the shot of amaretto with the margarita and I think it tastes great).

      I was a bartender at Olive Garden for a couple of years. This recipe also has a splash of orange juice and a splash of lime juice. That's how I was taught to make it. Not sure if every restaurant does that, but the two I worked at in Alabama did!

      I love my margaritas, but this one took first place in my house. The Amaretto adds the perfect amount of sweetness. I like to add the amaretto to the margarita and stir it up and is a big fat 10.
