Etch Kitchen & Bar has teamed up with L’Apothecary Spa to create the Infinite Love Margarita. This margarita combines the romance of L’Auberge, the sweet flavors at Etch, and the Lotus Wei Infinite Love collection from L’Apothecary Spa.
Infinite Love Margarita
Bartender Infused Hibiscus Tequila, L’Apothecary Love Mist, Damiana, Pomegranate Liqueur, Agave Black Salt, Hibiscus Flower Rim
We spent some time with Jordan Rogers, Director of Restaurants, and creator of this cocktail to understand the story and inspiration.
What is included in the hibiscus infused tequila?
100% Agave Reposado, Hibiscus Flower and 100% Organic Agave Nectar.
How long do you infuse it?
This infusion is made with heat, so it does not take as long to prepare as many of our other infusions. This signature infusion starts heating tequila and agave nectar to 160 degrees, just before the alcohol boiling point. We then steep organic hibiscus into the mix, let it cool to room temperature, then add additional tequila and agave nectar.
What is the hibiscus flavoring?
Herbaceous, Floral and Tart (lemony-tart and berry-rich)
What is Damiana?
Damiana liquor is derived from a plant that is indigenous to the Americas, and grows in areas from the Southwest U.S to South America. The plant has delicate oval leaves and small yellow flowers. The spirit is made from the leaves and stems that are gathered when the plant is flowering. The particular damiana spirit that we carry is made from plants that grow in Baja California, Mexico. Studies are few, but many believe that this plant increases blood flow and sexual arousal and stamina in men and women.
What flavor does Damiana give the margarita?
Damiana adds a sweet, minty, syrupy, spicy and herbaceous flavor to a margarita.
Do you rim this margarita with salt or sugar?
Our Infinite Love Margarita is garnished with a Crushed Hibiscus flower and Black Sea Salt Rim.
Yes, damiana is believed to increase blood flow and sexual arousal and stamina in men and women. Pomegranate has shown to increase testosterone and sexual appetite in men.
What is included in the infinite love mist?
Flower essences of Hong Kong Orchid, Pink Magnolia, Fireweed, Hawkweed, Lotus and gem essence of Pink Tourmaline to create an unconditional love for yourself & others; attract love + affection, enhanced magnetism, attractiveness + charisma. Magnifies gentleness, compassion, softness + receptivity.
