Like the memory of many events that occur in drinking establishments, the origin of the margarita is somewhat cloudy. Many bars and restaurants claim to have “invented” the drink- most of these are in Tijuana and most claim to have done so during Prohibition. To be honest- we need not look any further than the English translation of the name to find the inspiration for the drink. Margarita is Spanish for Daisy. The Daisy is a classic cocktail made from a base spirit, citrus juice and a flavored sweetener such as curacao. Sometimes soda water is added.
The key to a great margarita is all about the ingredients. We insist on 100% agave tequila and fresh juices. Our 2 Pepper Agave mixer is 100% agave syrup, fresh serrano pepper, black pepper, bitter orange peel, and coriander.
2 oz 100% agave tequila
1 oz 2 Pepper Agave
1 oz Citrus mix (equal parts lemon, lime, and orange juice)
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until very cold. Strain into a salt/sugar rimmed rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.
