While many had their minds firmly planted on the fact that yesterday was an angel numbers day, there was one other reason to celebrate, and that was because it was International Margarita Day. And, who better to help us celebrate than tequila giants, PATRÓN.
Opening the doors to their Museo de Margarita, the infamous liquor name looked to educate and delight visitors of their Soho-bound pop-up on the 22nd of February. With guests welcomed with a deliciously sour twist on the classic margarita upon entry, an energy as lively as the drink in question prevailed. And, after a quick tour through the drink’s history, starting as early as the 20s, courtesy of museum-esque plaques, it was time for a margarita making masterclass, delivered by Patrón’s own brand ambassador, Gian Luca Pavanello Canella, and accompanying tequila connoisseur, Kat Stanley. With the pair taking us through a quick tasting of different-aged tequilas, we were encouraged to experiment with fruity flavours and smoked salt in a bid to dream up the ultimate margarita, fitted to our personal palettes.
A truly marvellous way to celebrate what is personally one of our favourite cocktails, PATRÓN both educated us and delighted and provided us with free-flowing drinks. What more could you ask for?
