Bonefish Grill, Parker’s Margarita – St. Louis, MO

I’m not sure why Bonefish Grill serves their Margaritas (maybe all their drinks?) in slanted glasses but I think it’s pretty cool!

I had previously been to Bonefish Grill where I had tried the Patrón’s Perfect Cucumber Margarita. On this trip I wanted to try their Parker’s Margarita, named after the founder of Bonefish Grill and according to the menu, his favorite drink.

The menu does not list the ingredients specifically other to say the drink is “finished with fresh OJ and Grand Marnier”. That being said, it was very well made with a good flavor. The tequila was definitely pronounced, as was the orange juice and Grand Marnier on the finish which adds some citrus and sweetness. Unfortunately, there is a little bit of bitterness as well on the finish as I find Grand Marnier tends to do. Overall it was very pleasing and nice to drink. Had it not been for the little bit of bitterness from the Grand Marnier, it probably would have rated higher than the 8.5 I’m giving it. I can see why this is the founder’s favorite and I wonder if they used Patrón Citronge orange liqueur instead of Grand Marnier would it be almost perfect?
