This North End Margarita, inspired by the city of Boston, involves muddled tomato and a lemon/thyme/pepper citrus salt rim and is just one of the entries in Patrón Tequila's Search for 2018's Margarita of the Year!
In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, muddle one cherry tomato with agave nectar.
Add liquid ingredients and one thyme sprig and shake vigorously with ice to chill.
Strain through a mesh strainer into a chilled coupe that has been rimmed with the seasoned salt.
Garnish with remaining cherry tomato and thyme sprig, but don’t go (historically) overboard.
**Lemon/thyme/pepper citrus salt rim: Combine 2 tablespoons kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, and a twist of black pepper with the zest of half a lemon.
