Best of the Boat craft cocktail: Laundry’s Fiery Margarita
When The Laundry’s Tod “JJ” Johnson conceived the bar’s drink list, the Fiery Margarita was the first.
“It was invented at 3 a.m.,” Johnson said.
The 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 just has an incredible balance of heat and sweetness,” Johnson said.
