Single Estate Reposado Margarita
£13.00 – £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.
The Margarita was the beautiful lovechild of cross-border trade between America and Mexico during the prohibition of the 1930s. The story goes, Carlos Herrera designed the drink for aspiring actress Marjorie King, since she was allergic to all spirits, except tequila. He mixed it with lime and triple sec, to her taste.
The most famous dab hand to riff on the Margarita was Julio Bermejo, with his “Tommy’s Margarita,” named after his father Tomas, the founder of their family-run eatery in San Francisco. Julio felt that the triple sec overpowered the tequila, so he switched it out for fresh agave, to better complement the tequila flavours.
We used Julio’s recipe as a base, mixing it with our lip-smacking lime juice, and our secret bitters, which highlight the fantastic Reposado Tequila from Jalisco. Ocho Tequila is one of the only tequilas still made the old-fashioned way, by the Estes family, who source agave from their own family Ranchos. They employ only local distillers, who have roasted by hand in brick ovens for generations, which made Ocho Tequila the only choice for Tom Savano.
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.
Available in 200ml and 500ml bottles. Serving size 100ml.
