By now, you're hopefully well into the swing of National Margarita Month, with venues all over the city offering drink deals to celebrate the classic tequila tipple. Sure, we may have hit a little five-day bump in the road. Thankfully, Hotel Esplanade is planning to ramp things up post-lockdown and bring the month of margs home with a bang.
St Kilda's legendary seaside pub is bringing a little taste of Mexico to our shores with a lineup of Mexican-inspired food, mariachi band performances and, of course, plenty of tasty margaritas.
Make tracks to any of the venue's bars between Friday, February 19 and Saturday, February 27 to try a range of margaritas, all made with Herradura tequila. In addition to The Espy's signature Double Barrel Margarita and Mya Tiger's makrut lime version, the bartenders will also be shaking up three fruity twists on the classic: watermelon, yuzu and pineapple.
To pair with these tropical concoctions is a selection of tasty bites from chef Ashly Hicks — think coal-grilled corn with smoked paprika sour cream, cauliflower tacos with avocado and jalapeño and al pastor tacos with roast pineapple and coriander salsa.
Plus, if you want to check out the mariachi band, they'll be performing between 7–9pm on Friday, February 19 and 5–7pm on Saturday, February 20 and Sunday, February 21.
Bookings are recommended during peak times, which you can do via The Espy's website.
