The surprisingly refreshing ingredient in the Esencia Margarita – a favorite of the hip crowd at Hotel Esencia’s Beach Bar – is crushed ginger.    

  • 1½ oz. Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco

  • ½ oz. simple syrup

  • 1 oz. Cointreau

  • 2 oz. fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice

  • One small rosemary sprig

  • 5 grams of crushed ginger (roughly ½-inch piece, peeled and smashed)


Muddle rosemary, ginger, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add the tequila, Cointreau, juice, and ice, and shake vigorously. Double strain and serve on the rocks in a whiskey glass. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and a grapefruit peel twist.
