On February 22, is the National Margarita Day, a wonderful cocktail from Mexico that crosses borders and can be enjoyed all over the world.
In Torre Rosa we have also celebrated it with three different proposals:
Certainly, the latter is the one that has captivated us because of its originality. We want nobody miss the opportunity to stain their nose with this salt air that perfectly accompanies the Margarita cocktail.
Textures and airs are culinary techniques that this great chef has contributed and that are also used in the bar world. One of his best students is the chef José Andrés, who adapted this idea of adding salt air to his Margarita cocktail and took it to his restaurants in Washington and Las Vegas getting a resounding success. The air is like a foam, but much lighter.
Tequila is an alcoholic beverage originally from Jalisco, Mexico. It is made from the fermentation and distillation of the juice extracted from the plant called blue agave. We can enjoy its flavour in different ways, but the one we like the most is in the Margarita cocktail.
To obtain an exceptional one, we must balance very well the power of tequila with the sweetness of Cointreau and the citrus point of the lemon juice.
We love drinking it with salt on the edge of the glass, but in this new proposal we add the salt air on the surface. When you drink it you can taste the salt because it smells, and the foam brings this flavour, but in a much more subtle and fun way.
