What’s Ken Fulk’s biggest weakness? “My number one guilty pleasure would be my fondness for a really well-made margarita,” says Ken. “I don’t think there’s a time that I would say no to one. I tend to be pretty good and not over-indulge, but, it’s like a reward at the end of a hectic day. I’m not a chocolate guy, I’m not a french fry guy — but I’m a margarita guy.”
His refreshing margarita recipe — named after two of his three beloved golden retrievers — gets an effervescent twist thanks to mint and soda. Watch him make this delicious cocktail and get the full margarita recipe below.

PS: Want the scoop behind these amazing malachite walls during our Ken Fulk catalog shoot? Ken worked with the talented decorative painter Caroline Lizarraga to custom design this stunning paint treatment. “I have a great love of malachite,” says Ken. “I love the color, the sort of swirling marbleized quality of it.” Ken’s own collection of malachite bar accessories and a 15-foot malachite painted wall in his studio led to the creation of this version for our shoot with Douglas Friedman for the exclusive Pottery Barn and Ken Fulk collection.
