Retro Ritas

Sip your way through Iced VoVo and Fruit Tingle-inspired margaritas.

Combining tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice, a classic margarita isn't all that complicated. But, this beloved cocktail can also be rather versatile. If you've grabbed a meal and a drink at El Camino Cantina, you've probably tasted one or several non-traditional varieties. And if you head by the lively Tex-Mex chain's Fitzroy venue before Friday, January 22, you'll be able to sip four new types that are certain to get you feeling nostalgic.

When you were a kid and eating Iced VoVos at recess, we're guessing that you didn't ever imagine drinking an Iced VoVo-inspired margarita — but, that's now a reality. It's one of El Camino Cantina's 'retro ritas', alongside a Fruit Tingle-inspired version, one that takes its cues from Cottee's cordial and a guava flavour.

All four are available cadillac-style, which means they come with a float of Grand Marnier. You'll pay $20 for a 15-ounce drink, $24 for a 24-ounce serve and $30 for a tasting paddle of any four (in 220-millilitre glasses).
