Invented in the late 1980s by Julio Bermejo, the son of the original owners of San Fransisco’s famed Tommy’s Bar and Restaurant - the Tommy’s Margarita takes the usual trifecta of tequila, lime juice and triple sec and removes the last ingredient in favour of a splash of rich and sweet agave syrup.
CNN referred to Tommy’s as “ground zero of the tequila revolution” and with over 300 varieties of 100% agave tequila in stock at any one time, we think Tommy’s certainly lives up to its accolades.
Our twist on the classic is just a minor tweak. We have simply infused the agave syrup with pineapple - creating a depth of flavour and intrigue that befits this modern classic.
