With a split base of tequila and L’Aperitivo Nonino, Las Reinas Margarita is an Italian take on a classic cocktail. L’Aperitivo Nonino is a vegan-friendly, versatile aperitivo liqueur that comes from the legendary Friulian distillery. Las Reinas Margarita, which translates to the Queen’s Margarita, embodies the ethos of the women-run and -owned Nonino brand, while the imagery on the aperitivo bottle pays homage to the three generations of women master distillers.
L’Aperitivo Nonino plays particularly well in this rendition of the margarita, replacing the traditional orange essence with notes of citrus, rich grape, and a slight bitterness. Combined with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, this pared-back approach allows for a nuanced and refreshing margarita.
