Crowd-Pleasing Rosemary Margarita at Coletta in NYC

Though every product at Coletta contains an elegant simplicity, nothing is quite as “easy” as it might seem at first glance. Rather, the brilliant minds behind this menu present each option with a balance of flavors, making even the simplest meal, snack, or beverage something to behold!

Few items encapsulate that mission quite as easily as the crowd-pleasing rosemary margarita on our exclusive cocktail menu.

Like most classic margaritas, this drink starts with a foundation of tequila; unlike most, it refuses to profit from the easy, cheap production that relies on animal by-products. In keeping with our goal to present a full menu of cruelty-free options, our bartenders use only high-quality, kosher-certified, and vegan liquors to mix all our cocktails.

From here, our bartenders follow the traditional route to creating a margarita, with one major twist: the introduction of amaretto and rosemary.

The overall result is a margarita as you’ve never tasted it before: complex, sophisticated, and flavored with the ever-so-smokey hint of rosemary. Just one sip of this outstanding beverage, and you’ll be calculating ways to make it a part of every casual lunch or happy hour for the rest of the summer.
