Love tequila? Love a cocktail? Particularly a fan of a margarita? Well, then you’ve probably found yourself wondering at some point, where London’s best margarita is. Well then, we’ve got just the event for you. The London Margarita Rumble will drop down in East London this weekend to bring together some of London’s best bars and decide once and for all whose margarita reigns supreme.
On July 22, bartenders and mixologists will descend upon Hackney Wick’s canalside bar, Two More Years, to battle it out for the ultimate glory. They’ll fight to find out who serves up the best margarita in town. Guests get to wander around the space, sipping at margaritas as live music keeps the fiesta flowing, before voting for their favourite. And to keep it fair, they’ve standardized one ingredient – all margaritas will be made with Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver.
There will be nowhere to hide with everyone utilizing the same spirit. Instead, it will come down to ratios, fresh ingredients, and the skill of the bartenders. Each margarita will have a completely unique character, so you may find a new personal favourite – even if it doesn’t get crowned the victor.
Shaking things up at the Margarita Rumble
London has no shortage of incredible margaritas, and the London Margarita Rumble has procured an impressive selection of London’s best restaurants and bars to proffer up their tequila-laden wares. Among those vying for the margarita crown are That’s So Papos, Cafe Pacifico, MXO London, Two More Years, Jalisco Brixton, Mescal Itto, Primos Mexican, and many more.
With so many margaritas to try, you’ll definitely want some food to line the stomach! Fortunately, they’re bringing in some absolute powerhouse food options to keep the hunger at bay. One of London’s best chefs, Chef James Cochran, of the revered 12:51 in Islington, will be slinging food at the event. Joining him will be beloved burger vendor Lucky Chip to keep guests fed in between margaritas. Could this perhaps mark the return of Cochran’s famous fried chicken sandwiches? We can only hope!
