Building on the classic margarita, La Margherita (also “little Margaret”, but in Italian) includes orange liqueur, as one would in a top shelf margarita, as well as a full ounce of Cannella Cinnamon Cordial, which adds a lovely brightness. Though many bitters will finish it off nicely, Seven Stills Prickly Pear Bitters keep the flavor profile consistent.
