Single Estate Reposado Margarita
£12.00 – £27.00
Margaritas immediately conjure up scenes of the beach, or laying by the pool on a sweltering day. Either way it’s bikinis, ice and tangy tequila.
Our gold medal winning version is made in Tommy’s style, using a golden reposado tequila from Jalisco, one of the few still made the old-fashioned way. Finished off with lip smacking tangy lime, our own secret bitters and a hint of smokiness. Serve ice cold with a subtle salt rim.
Who doesn’t love a Margarita? One of the more disputed spirits, tequila is a world of flavour and passion that very few come to truly appreciate. Often down to having developed an aversion during university, doing shots of a tequila that could double as industrial cleaner.
The truth, couldn’t be more different. The fields of Mexico are filled with thousands upon thousands of maturing agave plants, which take 7-15 years each to grow. After watching over the crops for close to a decade, the Jimador farmers harvest them by hand, grinding them under a stone wheel and distilling the incredible tastes out for your pleasure.
Invented some time around 1940 (likely by drinkers heading across the border to find good spirits during prohibition), the combination of sweet orange, tequila and lime became legendary overnight. So when we came to craft our own signature margarita, we wanted to keep as much of that authenticity as possible.
Of course it started by using one of the only tequilas still made the old fashioned way, distilled from agave grown only on their own estates. Next we carefully balanced the tartness of the lime with the sweetness of orange, while wondering how we would make it our own. The answer, lay in Tommy’s style. Rather than overpowering the tequila with orange, Tommy’s style uses fresh agave syrup to lend the sweetness the cocktail craves. More, it doesn’t dominate the cocktail as orange liqueur does, supporting the pure flavours of the tequila itself.
There’s one more secret ingredient, but we keep that as secret as the colonels spices.
Served ice cold, there isn’t a more perfect way to step out of your daily life and instantly be lying on the warm sands of a beach in Cabo. See if you can feel those palm trees blowing gently in the breeze, and the ocean sparkling like a sea of diamonds before you.
