Looking for recipe of Lawrence's Bakery an old New Orleans bakery, specially

Hello Oscar,

Sorry, I was unable to find any mention of the apple coffee cake, although I did find a few mentions of the red velvet cake and king cake from Lawrence's. No recipes, though.

I'll post this on the site. Perhaps a reader can help.

Sue's Italian Margaritas 

2oz Jose Cuervo 
2oz Triple Sec
1oz Amaretto
2oz Roses lime juice
4oz Mt Dew
Margarita salt

*Do "Not" substitute any of the ingredients! If you do you will not get the same taste, I know I tried it twice.

1. Add the first 5 ingredients in a blender, add at least two handfuls of ice. You can add more if you want. 
Cover and blend, crush or leaving small pieces of ice. 
2. Salt the rims of the glasses and pour the margarita mix. 
3. The color will be a yellowish green in color. 

Everyone that I have made this for loved them except for one little old lady who would rather stick to drinking her beer. ;-)
This is my recipe that you won't find on the internet, recipe book or bar. I hope you enjoy my Margaritas. 
If you try it, please let me know what you think about it.
