This is our twist on the often abused original. The classic being bright, sharp, tangy and salty, this is a slightly fruitier, herbaceous version.

Ingredients

50ml Tequila

25ml Lime Juice

25ml Pineapple Juice

12.5ml Sage Gomme

Lime Wedge for Garnish

Method

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the tequila, pineapple juice and sage gomme to the shaker.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 25ml of lime juice and add it to the shaker.

Fill the shaker with cubed ice and seal using your Boston tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

Fill your rocks glass with cubed ice and, using your Hawthorne strainer, strain your cocktail into the glass.

Garnish with a lime wedge.

Serve and enjoy!

History

The Margarita was created sometime around the 1930’s but nobody is quite sure where or quite sure when.

However, it has gone on to become a classic cocktail the world over with all sorts of weird and wonderful twists and created in many different forms. The base ingredients, however, should always be the same no matter what is added: tequila, orange curacao, lime and sugar.

According to cocktail historian David Wondrich, author of Imbibe!, the best guess is that the Margarita as we know and love it, evolved from a cocktail known as the “Daisy.” This mix of alcohol, citrus juice, and grenadine served over shaved ice, was popular during the 1930s and 40s.
