The Lucky Lilly

My favorite twist on the margarita.

A recipe taken from All Star Lanes, Holborn, London.

I’m at work one night, it was early around 7pm. Abdul my bar manager was at the end of the bar talking to lady named Lilly. He stood at 5’6 animated Mancunian (from Manchester). He was trying to impress Lilly with his bar tending skills, “what’s your favorite fruit?’ he asked her. “I like Pineapples”, she replied holding his stare, I like Pineapples and tequila”. And so forth was born the “Lucky Lilly”. And because Abdul got lucky with Lilly later that night.
