Trinity Restaurant, one of lower Decatur Street’s hottest spots, has been named by Conde Nast Traveler and OpenTable as one of the best places to eat and drink in New Orleans. Conde Nast Traveler calls it the ‘Best Fancy-But-Not-Fussy Creole Food’ in ‘the Quarter’. They go on to say that the cultures and flavors collide at Trinity. And that’s what you’ll find there – an authentic New Orleans dining experience along with modern touches. They focus on locally sourced ingredients to create imaginative dishes.

But they also have a top-notch bar. And they are always running specials and offering specialty drinks. For National Tequila Day, they offered the Garden Margarita by beverage director Adam Orzechowski. The cocktail was made with Exotico tequila, jalapeño peppers, tarragon syrup, Pernod, Ancho Reyes, lime, lemon, tarragon garnish and a salt/sugar rim. Trinity Restaurant was kind enough to share that recipe here for you to enjoy at home.
