It’s no secret that tequila is having a bit of a moment, or multiple years worth of a moment, right now. Celebrity tequilas abound, bars are focussing more intently than ever on their tequila drinks and offerings, and interest in tequila cocktails is ever-rising. Just this past year has seen a 54% increase in interest in Mexico’s national drink: the much-loved Paloma. So to spread even more awareness of this delightful drink, of which an essential component is grapefruit soda, Franklin & Sons are giving out a bunch of free Palomas. Naturally.
Partnering up with Flight Club and Electric Shuffle, over 1,000 Palomas will be up for grabs for those who make bookings for brunch at the participating venues on Sunday, July 24. That’s National Tequila Day for those not keeping track at home. The offer does only run for as long as stocks last, so don’t make that booking too late!
More free stuff
They’re not just stopping at giving away free Palomas either, as a concurrently running competition will also see participants given the chance to win 90 minutes of social darts for up to 12 guests plus a £300 bar tab to spend on food and drinks at Flight Club! Anyone want to do the maths for us on how many Palomas that is? To enter, all you have to do is upload a picture of your Paloma creation to Instagram, and tag @franklinandsons with #remarkabledrinks in the caption. The competition runs all the way through to the end of August, and with the Paloma being the perfect hot weather cocktail, you’ll have plenty of time to make plenty of Palomas, resulting in plenty of entries.
EVEN MORE FREE STUFF
But wait, there’s more! Franklin & Sons are also giving away 700 cocktails kits worth over £10,000. The kits contain all the ingredients needed to make the perfect Paloma. There’s Patrón reposado tequila, lime juice, agave syrup, Franklin & Sons’ new Pink Grapefruit Soda, and dried pink grapefruit to garnish. To enter, just head to their website and fill in the competition form.
Multiple venues across the UK are participating in the giveaway, and the competitions are running nationwide. Book in at one of the following Flight Club or Electric Shuffle venues to get your free Paloma fix.
