Bar Patrón is dialing up International Tequila Day celebrations on July 24 with its $100 Millionaire’s Margarita.
Custom-made tableside, the cocktail begins with lime and agave being hand-pressed and shaken with a trio of super-premium and rare spirits – Patrón Gran Burdeos Extra Añejo Tequila, which is aged in Premier Cru Bordeaux barrels; 150-year old, rich and luxurious Grand Marnier Cuvée du Cent Cinquantenaire; and the ‘King of Cognac’, Remy Martin Louis XIII.
The margarita is then double strained over an ice sphere that is adorned with a shimmer of gold leaf and freckles of nitro-blasted native finger-lime pearls.
Rockpool Dining Group Beverage Director Ali Toghani said: “Our Millionaire’s Margarita is a tribute to the world’s highest quality, artisanal tequila made by Patrón, and a legacy of the alchemists and mixologists at Rockpool Dining Group.”
Overlooking Sydney’s Circular Quay, Bar Patrón offers 19 varieties of Patrón Tequila, including exclusive and limited-edition varieties, some of which are not available anywhere else in the world.
The restaurant is also offering a National Tequila Day package (priced at $120pp) available for lunch and dinner, which includes a signature Patrón margarita on arrival, a tasting flight of Patrón Roca, Silver, Reposado and Añejo, followed by a share-style menu of traditional Mexican dishes paired with wine.
