Tequila, triple sec, lime juice. You might think you know the classic Margarita, but National Margarita Week will give you a whole new perspective on the world’s favourite cocktail. 100% agave tequila brand Cazcabel have expanded the already existing Margarita Day, to a whole week (thanks guys), all about using quality ingredients and learning all about the process of Margarita making – which you can do right here in Manchester.
Up and down the country there will be ‘Master Your Margarita’ masterclasses, events, tastings, partnerships and promotions, all to celebrate the cocktail. From the 18th to 26th February, Manchester bars such as Science and Industry and El Capo will be hosting drinks experiences to celebrate all things Margarita, in partnership with Cazcabel.
Science and Industry at Cane and Grain will be hosting a masterclass on 23rd February, where tequila experts will take guests through the techniques and ingredients that can transform a boring supermarket-grade Margarita into something special. Guests will learn about flavoured syrups and complementary liqueurs before making their own Margarita recipe and taking a bottle of their creation home with them.
There will also be a special margarita menu at Science and Industry after the 7-9pm event – which includes three unique twists on the classic.
Manchester cult favourite Mexican bar El Capo are also getting in on the action with a bespoke Margarita Week menu, with cocktails costing just £6 – a real Marg barg! And you know it’ll be good coming from these giants of Mexican mixology.
Margaritas are always a good idea, but Margarita Week gives that all-important excuse to taste the spectrum of growing recipes and twists on the classic. Plus, National Margarita Day falls on 22nd February, so if you’re holding off until then, you can meticulously plan your Margarita-related activities, whether you’re more of a taster or a shaker.
