MARGARITAS & MARIACHI - Sponsored by Tequila Patrón

8:00pm - 10:00pm at Ace Hotel

Two exciting events in one night!

Tequila Patrón Presents: Margaritas and Mariachi!” Fire up your shakers! The Margarita is the best-selling cocktail in America. Despite its popularity, most of the margaritas consumed today bear little resemblance to the original classic cocktail. In this class we will discuss the history of the margarita; demonstrate proper margarita technique; taste classic Margaritas and Patrón’s 2018 Margarita of the Year, the Verde Margarita; and send you off with all the tools you need to make great Margaritas at home. Enjoy the traditional and modern sounds of the acclaimed Mariachi Los Toros, visting from Austin, TX.

$40 (includes Tasting Rooms, Panel Discussions, Seminar and Events)
