Tommy’s Margarita

September 28, 2023

Tommy’s Margarita is a cocktail invented in 1990 in the city of San Francisco by Julio Bermejo who was the owner of the family restaurant “Tommy’s”. Unlike in the original Margarita cocktail, Julio decided to add agave nectar (instead of Triple sec) which tremendously enhanced the drink’s flavor.
