Mexico! what come to mind when you think of Mexico. I think of Fiestas, bright colours, lively music, Mayan ruins, hot chillis, chocolate and amazing food with lots of zingy flavours.
This month in London, Tequila Fest hits town again, bigger and better than last year. There will be lots of workshops on Tequila and Mezcal, tastings, Mexican food, music and culture.
Here is a quick preview of what’s going to be on show. 2015 is the year of Mexico in the UK and the UK in Mexico, and to celebrate Tequila and Mezcal aficionados can sip their way through an exclusive collection of these two traditional Mexican beverages. Born with one objective, Tequila and Mezcal Fest aims to educate consumers on how to drink and enjoy Mexico’s greatest export – salt and lime will be banned at the door along with novelty sombreros: this is a sipping only zone.
Some of the UK’s finest bartenders will be holding master classes on the art of Mexican cocktail making, such as everyone’s favourite – the Margarita. Food connoisseurs will not be disappointed as they have access to a mouth-watering selection of authentic Mexican street food such as, Café Pacifico, Condesa Latin Tapas, Barrio Bars, Tamal uk and Vera & Co. Delicious cocktails will also be provided by Barrio Bars.
