What’s your Margarita moment?

Celebrate the salty-sour cocktail the right way during Margarita Month (February)

Ahead of International Margarita Day on 22 February, Bacardi-owned Patrón Tequila has launched Margarita Month, a nationwide campaign in February, celebrating the classic cocktail and encouraging fans to share their favourite Margarita Moments. 

As evidenced by 3.4 million #margarita tags on Instagram, Margaritas are what we pour for life’s happiest moments. This simple concoction of tequila, lime, agave and orange liqueur has stolen our hearts, while nailing four out of five of our taste buds: the salty rim of the glass, the sweetness of the agave, the bitterness of the tequila, and the sourness of the limes. Whether you like yours frozen, on the rocks, salt or no salt, sweet or spicy, the margarita is a refreshing cocktail for everyone. It also looks and feels oh-so-right whether you’re in a tuxedo or a bathing suit, sipping from a dainty glass or slurping from a giant plastic cup. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re at a bar, at home or just finished an important meeting; Patrón wants to see your Margarita Moments to celebrate one of the world’s most popular cocktails. During this time consider it cocktail lovers law to treat yourself to Margaritas every which way, choosing from fresh and floral variations through to those at the spicy and fragrant end of the spectrum. 

With few ingredients to hide behind, this classic recipe demands good spirits. Ultra-premium Patrón Silver tequila is renowned for its clean palate, clear colour, and floral notes, and the perfect inclusion to elevate a classic margarita. Drinkers of Patrón Silver tequila can anticipate a super smooth early palate eventually transforming into a warm sweetness laced with citrus and spice. Patrón Silver Tequila is available at Dan Murphy’s and BWS.
