The Story Behind The Spicy Tommy #2

This Margarita variation nixes the triple sec and uses fresh orange slices instead to infuse the orange flavor notes. It also uses a little bit more agave than a traditional Margarita, which offsets the kick added from cayenne pepper or Tajin rim. 



  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1 ounce fresh lime
  • 1/2 ounce agave
  • 2 orange wedges
  • Garnish: cayenne pepper or Tajin


  1. Combine all ingredients into a mixing tin with ice.
  2. Shake and strain into a coupe.
  3. Garnish with a thin line of cayenne pepper or Tajin.
