About four years ago, a friend of mine passed me a ripped out page of the April 2009 issue of Bon Appetit magazine. Her goal? To get me to try the Rose Margarita. Someone had to make the sacrifice. I was up to the challenge. In fact, I had already bookmarked the same recipe. Big margarita fan here.
A reader had written in to the R.S.V.P. readers’ favorite restaurant recipes section of the magazine to request the recipe for this margarita from Stack, a Las Vegas restaurant in The Mirage.
The reader had fallen in love with this margarita… and called it “the most interesting cocktail I’ve ever had.”
This is a seriously delicious and interesting cocktail. I made a few changes, but the “addition of rose water gives this cocktail a fragrant exotic touch.”
