Tuck into a five-course Mexican feast with matching tequilas on the northern beaches.

How nice it would be to sip tequila on the coast of Mexico instead of braving winter. But, unless you have a trip booked in the next three weeks, you're going to have to see it out in Sydney. Luckily, our city also has stunning beaches — and some top-notch Mexican eateries, too. One of them is Avalon's Alma, perched just metres from the beach. So, if you're wishing to ward away your winter blues by sipping on tequila and tucking into a Mexican feast, here's a pretty good spot to do so.
To celebrate World Tequila Day (mark your calendars for July 24), the northern beaches restaurant has teamed up with award-winning tequila makers Herradura to create a menu inspired by the drink. Available from July 24 until August 24, the menu will feature Alma's usual menu with plenty of Mexican flair, but with the added bonus of tequila and daily cocktail specials. Think the likes of agave-glazed haloumi, ceviche, tacos galore or, if you're feeling daring, the chilli lime crickets (yes, crickets). Drinkswise, you can expect a refreshing Aperol and Herradura tequila concoction with guava, lime, sugar and kombucha and even one with pork belly-washed reposado tequila, tomato extract, lemon and jalapeño 'mist'.
There'll also be a ticketed five-course dinner on Thursday, August 8. For $65, you'll get to tuck into tostadas layered with habanero salsa, chunky duck confit tacos, and grilled spatchcock with creamy oaxacan black mole sauce. This will all be topped off with paired tastes of Herradura tequila throughout. It's a surefire way to curb your wanderlust in no time.
Alma's Herradura-inspired menu will be on offer from July 24 through August 24. To reserve a table, head here. The five-course feast paired with Herradura tequilas will occur from 7pm, Thursday, August 8 and can be booked here.
