Sydney's Best Margaritas right in Bondi Junction
Posted on Mon, 27 Jun 2016
Um did someone say margarita?! As you know we may be a little obsessed here at El Topo Mexican with the humble margarita. We can’t help if we think it’s the most delicious drink in the world and wish we could drink them every single day. But that being said let us give you a little information on this fun-inducing cocktail.
The simple margarita is a cocktail traditionally consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice. It’s often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The margarita can be served shaken with ice i.e. on the rocks, blended with ice i.e. a frozen margarita, or for those traditionalist souls served straight up without ice. The drink is traditionally served in the classic margarita glass (which coincidentally looks like an upside down sombrero). Ole!
The margarita’s origins can be traced back to (yep, you guessed it) Mexico in the 1930’s and 40’s but the exact story on how the margarita came to be born, is rather hazy. But I guess all we really need to know is that it now comes in 5 wonderful flavours here at El Topo Mexican. Making our daily choice very hard indeed. Let us list all the deliciousness right here:
Classic – you can’t go wrong with a tried and true classic. But of course, we don't do things like every one else does so you can also jazz up your classic margarita and try it with Mezcal (tequila's cousin, made from the maguey plant, a form of agave).
Tommy’s – Who’s Tom I hear you say? Well, we have no clue but we’re sure he must have been a legend because this cocktail is downright delicious – a cheeky spin on the classic but made with Mexican agave syrup.
Coconut – If you’re nuts about coconut then this concoction is all your dreams come true. This popular choice will have you instantly dreaming of white sand beaches and bikinis. Made with all sorts of lusciousness, or more importantly, house made coconut-infused premium tequila.
Jalapeño – so if peppery goodness is your jam the unique flavours of our Jalapeño Margarita will have you singing from the rooftops (specifically our rooftop, on Level 4).
Chilli – one word with this bad boy and that’s SPICE. If you’re addicted to chilli like we are, then you have to try this house chilli-infused tequila Margarita. It’s insane.
So don't let the winter chills get you down - get your ass to El Topo Mexican and try our amazing line up of margaritas!
