There’s nothing like a good margarita to unwind after a long week, especially when paired with Mexican food. Which, to be fair is a match made in heaven. Imagine a whole festival dedicated to one of the world’s most loved cocktails. Actually, wait, you don’t have to imagine. Perth’s favourite margarita festival is back in March and is ready to bring all things salt and spice.
Margarita Fiesta will be taking over Market Grounds on March 6 this year, which just so happens to fall on the Labour Day long weekend (extra recovery time, yay!). You can expect a whole bunch of tequila pop-up stalls, DJs, masterclasses, a frozen margarita caravan bar, as well as taco stalls and tequila-filled slushies. Although you might not be able to try everything, you can certainly do your best.
If you’re a lover of spicy AF things, then why not give Perth’s hottest marg a go? Not for the faint of heart, this piping hot number is made with ghost chilli infused tequila, “death sauce” (sounds brutal), and a birds eye chilli salt rim. I’m nearly sweating just thinking about it, but who knows, it might intrigue you.
You can buy general admission tickets to Margarita Fiesta for $25 each, which includes two margs on arrival. Or, if you’re feeling like a little bit more, you can opt for a VIP ticket for $69 which will get you a special tequila tasting masterclass plus two margaritas. Then there’s the Fiesta Lunch ticket for $69 too, which includes a delicious three-course Mexican feast, dessert, and three tequila cocktails. Yum!
You can nab a ticket here. Get in quick before they sell out like last year’s did.
