His signature “Markarita” is a “refreshing twist on the traditional drink that also stays true to its sunny, south-of-the-border origins,” whereas the “Dahlia” margarita celebrates the nationwide flower of Mexico and exudes floral notes by the drink from its pink colour to the usage of elderflower liqueur.
If you wish to actually impress your company, attempt the “Margarita Flora,” which “has a pleasant bouquet of hibiscus tea, do-it-yourself honey lavender syrup and a splash of rose water.”
