Cocktail Recipe: Tommy’s Margarita

Learn to make a delicious Tommy’s Margarita at home with Applejack Group Bars Manager Lachy!

The Tommy’s Margarita is a crowd favourite at all Applejack restaurants and now our Group Bars Manager Lachy Sturrock shares his recipe for the cocktail for you to make at home, using only 3 ingredients!

The Tommy’s Margarita was invented by Tequila legend Julio Bermejo at Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant in San Francisco, California. The key differences between the Tommy’s and a Classic Margarita is; the use of Agave nectar, instead of Orange liqueur. A Tommy’s Margarita is also served over ice, instead of straight up, and more times than not – no salt rim.


  • 60ml Tequila
  • 30ml fresh lime juice
  • 15ml Agave Syrup
  • 1 lime wedge or wheel


  1. First, chill your cocktail glass with ice and set aside
  2. Add all your ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well for 10-15 seconds.
  3. Double strain your cocktail into your chilled glass over ice, and garnish with a healthy wedge or wheel of lime.
