The award-winning bottled cocktail
If you’re looking to celebrate National Margarita Day at home, enjoy a bottle or two of the award-winning Mirror Margarita. Previously voted Time Out Global’s 7th Best Cocktail in the World, this modern crystal-clear twist on the classic margarita makes a chic and stylish addition to any evening or an elegant gift for the cocktail connoisseur.
The Mirror Margarita was developed by Hacha’s co-founder Deano Moncrieffe, who was inspired to create a cocktail that was familiar in both name and taste but strikingly different in appearance. The result is a wonderfully layered, innovative yet authentic liquid that elevates the notes of the agave plant. It is a bespoke, top secret recipe created by Deano which achieves the cocktail’s wonderful flavour.
Mirror Margarita can be purchased from Mirror Margarita’s website for £36
