Andy Geanacopoulos publisher of Wine in Glasses has blogged about a Margarita made with Essensia. The recipe is found in Quady Cock-Tails, a drink book available from the winery with our wines as ingredients. We got it from the head bartenders at a popular Mexican restaurant, Barrio, in Seattle Washington after Barrio's Margarita was voted "Best Margarita in Seattle". It was originally published it in the December 2010 edition of our newsletter: Dessert Wine Digest. Several years of our newsletters can be found archived on the Quady Winery web site. Using Essensia, which is made from the Orange Muscat grape variety (in place of triple sec) instills a new level of sophistication to this classic cocktail. Although Petron tequila (shown in the photo) can be used, the recipe called for El Jimador.
From Barrio Restaurant, Seattle where Essensia is used in place of the typical Triple Sec or Orange Liqueur.
