Mcdowell's Masterpiece



McDOWELL'S MASTERPIECE

The non-alc margarita can be a tough one. You want the citrus complexity of triple sec, but without introducing alcohol. Orange juice does the trick in some recipes, but it can bring unwanted volume and juicy opacity for those who prefer their margs on the light and crispy side. Introducing our friend Bill McDowell – the man with the non-alc margarita plan. Bill infuses his simple syrup with orange zest for all the flavor and none of the bulk, then tops it off with club soda in a chipotle salt rimmed glass. A little sweet, a little heat. Flavorful, yet light and crispy. It's the all day, all summer, perfectly balanced marg. Cheers!
