LOS ANGELES

The Bazaar by José Andrés Beverly Hills

DRINK: The Salt Air Margarita

TOAST: The story and inspiration behind this cocktail by Chef Jose himself:

When we were reopening Café Atlantico, in 1995, my team and I, we thought a lot about cocktails. How can we, for example, add sweet or savory elements, or use the techniques of my friend Ferran Adrià. With the salt rim on a margarita, you get a lot of salt each sip. Maybe sometimes, too overdone. And then, I thought about sitting on a beach. I thought about taking a vacation in the south of Spain with my wife, Tichi. And I thought about my home region of Asturias in Spain. You know there, the ocean is a part of your life. I thought about watching the ocean’s foamy waves crash into the shore, and how light and salty they taste on your lips. No more salt on the rim! With my margarita, it is the sea foam that hits your lips—a bit of salt in each sip.
