Tequila flights, specialty Margaritas, limited-edition menu items available.
Nowhere screams ‘tequila!’ louder than Tex-Mex wild child El Camino Cantina, where a six-day celebration is about to get underway in honour of National Tequila Day, which falls on Saturday, 24 July.
From Tuesday, 20 July to Sunday, 25 July, El Camino Cantina restaurants in Victoria and Queensland will offer a tequila-focused menu of food specials and drinks infused with this iconic spirit. NSW restaurants will join the party if Sydney reopens in July.
For one week only, El Camino Cantina’s signature Tex-Mex tacos and chicken wings will showcase limited-edition menu items featuring the distinctive flavours of tequila.
El Camino Cantina’s cult followers and Tex-Mex fans can indulge in the Tequila Chicken Taco, featuring tequila-spiced marinated chicken, red cabbage, lime, pickled onion, coriander, jalapeño and avocado for $7, or a pocket-friendly $2 on Taco Tuesday.
In addition, Australia’s sauciest of wings – currently available in 13 incredible ‘King of the Wing’ flavours – will be coated in a pungent mix of tequila, lime, chilli and paprika for an additional limited-edition flavour kick. All wings are available in 10-piece ($13), 20-piece ($23), 50-piece ($49) and 100-piece ($94) serves, or for 10 cents each on Wing Wednesday (with a drink purchase).
Tequila flights are available all week for enthusiasts of this age-old spirit, with two options available, each showcasing three 30ml tastes of premium tequila:
• 1800 Tequila Flight: featuring Coconut, Reposado and Blanco varieties
of this world renowned tequila – $40.
• Patrón Tequila Flight: featuring ultra-premium Patrón XO Café, Patrón
Reposado and Patrón Silver – $45.
El Camino Cantina’s legendary Margaritas are available for $10 on Thursday, 22 July in all signature flavours – classic, mango, strawberry and calypso crush. The Not So Soft Drink series and a limited-edition Redskin-infused Margarita will also be available all week.
El Camino Cantina Food & Beverage Director Molly Haranis said: “At El Camino Cantina we’re celebrating our favourite spirit in typical Tex-Mex fusion style, including a tequila-splashed, spice-spiked dressing for our legendary chicken wings, and a flavour-packed tequila and spice-marinated chicken taco – both of which are available for one week.
“From premium tequila flights to fun Margarita flavours, El Camino Cantina ticks all the boxes for tequila enthusiasts, and those who may be unaccustomed to, but keen to explore, the uniqueness of this iconic drink.”
