Recipes: A Simple Margharita

A simple recipe for a golden state of mind...

This season, we are reaching for our arch tumblers - a gorgeous vessel for a mixed beverage. With beach season upon us, we’ve developed a cocktail that features just the right amount of citrus and sour offset with a sweet salty rim.

Ingredient List:

Casa Dragones or Patron Tequila

Grand Marnier

Simple Syrup

Two Limes

Alaea Red Sea Salt


In a cocktail shaker, mix 2 parts tequila and 1 part lime juice. Add the zest of the lime, a splash of simple syrup and a squeeze of orange juice. Taste and adjust to your preference.

Take your arch tumbler - we like to chill ours - and rub the squeezed orange around the rim. Dip in Alaea Red Sea salt sea salt. Put crushed ice in each tumbler and add a few thinly sliced lime pieces to the side then pour your ice cold margarita. If you’re feeling frisky, top with a splash of Grand Marnier.
