Tommy’s Margarita was conceived in San Francisco in 1990 by Julio Bermejo at his parents’ restaurant called Tommy’s (not to be confused with Tommy’s Place in Juárez, Mexico). Bermejo had been recently introduced to agave nectar as an ingredient, and, although it was still expensive at the time, he used it to enhance the agave flavour of the cocktail instead of using triple sec to highlight the citrus flavour in the original Margarita recipe.
