There are plenty of ways to celebrate National Tequila Day today, but let’s be honest: we’re in it for the margaritas. True to form, we’re taking a classic and giving it our signature sbe twist. The Jasmine Margarita was named for and inspired by Jasmine Starck, Philippe’s wife, who is especially fond of pomegranate margaritas. Sweet and citrusy with a spicy rim, it’s hard to have just one – but we’re not here to judge. Join us at The Bazaar at SLS Beverly Hills or SLS South Beach to try our version, or stay home, make a big batch and enjoy!
