DOTW: Margherita

February 22, 2013 is National Margarita Day. This week’s Drink of the Week is a bit of an Infusiasm twist on the margarita… well a twist on the Margherita Pizza. Subtract the cheese and add tequila and you get quit a nice tipple to celebrate with this week.

This was one of those off-the-wall ideas that worked out well. It produces a  very earthly, herbal cocktail with a bite. One I will surely be trying again alongside a slice of actual Margherita Pizza.

Enjoy!
