2019 Best of the Boat craft cocktail: Fiery Margarita, The Laundry Kitchen & Cocktails
When The Laundry’s Tod “JJ” Johnson conceived the bar’s drink list, the Fiery Margarita was the first one on the list.
“It was invented at 3 a.m.,” Johnson says, adding the now-famous margarita is unique in its use of flavors.
It includes a high-end Sauza tequila infused with red pepper, green pepper, garlic, jalapeno and one habanero for just the right kick. Add a cilantro/lemongrass simple syrup, fresh lime juice and a splash of fresh-squeezed orange juice and it’s as good as libations get.
The drink became a hit instantly among regulars and has since become the restaurant’s best-selling cocktail.
“It has an incredible balance of heat and sweetness,” Johnson says.
