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.


margherita 02

Cocktail Name

2 oz. garlic habanero-infused tequila
1 oz. tomato-basil simple syrup

– combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice
– shake vigorously
– double strain into chilled cocktail glass
garnish: fresh basil leaf


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.
