Celebrate International Margarita Day

Café Pacifico x Jose Cuervo

Café Pacifico x Jose Cuervo

Head to Café Pacifico who’ve collaborated with Jose Cuervo to create a limited edition margarita menu consisting of the Kombucha Margarita, the Cuervo Tradicional, and the Cuervo Tradicional Watermelon Margarita. They’ll only be on the menu for a week from 18th February, so we recommend getting down ASAP. Plus, if you want a money-free margarita, head there at 4 pm and be one of the first 30 people there – then, you’ll get a free margarita! Simply say to the bartender, “Make mine a Cuervo Tradicional Margarita, please!”.
