12 drinks of Christmas – Tommy’s Margarita

Happy Christmas! The last of our 12 Christmas cocktails is a proper celebratory drink. Agave is king in this simplified Margarita.


  • 50ml tequila blanco
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 15ml agave syrup


Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with a wedge of lime or add a sprig of mint for colour.

We love this with Olmeca Blanco Tequila (£19.99 for 70cl) for a smooth, citrus hit.

Top tip

You don’t need to have all the gear to make a great cocktail: wash out an old jam jar or a Kilner jar and you have the perfect shaking solution. Just make sure you’ve sealed the lid tightly!
