Tequila! Refreshing, fruity, strong – Margaritas are one of the country's favourite cocktails, and for good reason. The rest of the world thinks they're pretty great too, with International Margarita Day coming up this Saturday 22nd. Observed annually, February 22nd acknowledges the celebrations of the tequila, triple sec, and lime cocktail as a drink enjoyed by millions across the globe.
So, why not get amongst the festivities this weekend with a trip to try some of Auckland's best?
Jose's Cantina in Birkenhead are throwing a fiesta to celebrate, with plenty of margaritas and Mexican food to go round. Labelling them as "addictive" Joses take their margaritas very seriously, and at $10 a pop on Saturday, it's going to be hard to say no to another round.
Jose's will also have food specials, live Latin music, and sombreros to pass round for everyone to make a night of it. Head down from 6pm on Saturday with your amigos to start sipping!
When: International Margarita Day, Saturday 22nd February, 6pm
Where: Jose's Cantina, 12-14 Birkenhead Avenue, Birkenhead
