Tommy's Margarita is an all-day cocktail and variant of the Margarita cocktail. It is recognised by the IBA as a New Era Drink.[1]

Mixture[edit]

It is made with tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar and served in a cocktail glass. It is distinct from the Margarita in its omission of orange liqueur and its substitution of agave nectar.[2]

History[edit]

Tommy's Margarita was conceived in San Francisco in 1990 by Julio Bermejo at his parents' restaurant called Tommy's (not to be confused with Tommy's Place in Juárez, Mexico. See Margarita Origin). Bermejo had been recently introduced to agave nectar as an ingredient, and, although it was still expensive at the time, he used it to enhance the agave flavor of the cocktail instead of using triple sec to highlight the citrus flavor in the original Margarita recipe.[2][3][4]
