There are a number of variations to the classic by adding fruit and their juices. Fruits like mango, peach, strawberry, banana, melon, or raspberry are suitable for creating this drink. Many recipes call for a splash of orange juice. This cocktail can be prepared in many different ways. Whatever you add, lime juice or lemon juice is added to give it a classic flavour with a wedge served perched on the edge of the glass. However, no matter how you drink this cocktail the classic Cointreau, Tequila and Lime Juice is a must.
