For a long time, it was all about the Marg: Margaritas this, Margaritas that. But the Paloma is nestling its way in, much like the taller, younger, better looking woman he told you not to worry about. If you’re a tequila fan and you haven’t tried one yet, you’re seriously missing out. Fortunately there’s a brand new way to try the grapefruity concoction, and it’s a gimmick that I am personally absolutely here for.
PATRÓN Tequila have created what they are calling the world’s first Paloma fountain — and hey, who am I to dispute that? It’s a gorgeous set up inspired by Mexican plazas, and it’s wheeled around on a little trolley at Cavita, a lovely Mexican restaurant in Marylebone Village.
Every Saturday and Sunday, diners are able to tuck into Cavita’s traditional Mexican brunch menu, alongside 90 minutes of bottomless Palomas and Margaritas. Anyone opting for Palomas will be able to fill their own high-ball glass straight from the fountain.
Cavita’s brunch features Mexican favourites such as Huevos Rancheros, Tacos de Asada and Sea Bream Ceviche, with prices starting at around £12 a dish. Bottomless tequila cocktails will set you back another £49 – but if you consider the usual price for an individual cocktail, you’ve only* got to sink four before you’ve made back your money and then some.
The PATRÓN Paloma fountain is available at Cavita on Saturday and Sunday each week, from 11.30am to 2.30pm. Head to Cavita’s website to book a table, or read more about the restaurant and its hidden tequila bar here.
*I really had to consider my use of the word “only” here. Four’s actually quite a lot of tequilas, isn’t it? It’s highly possible I have a tequila problem. Anyway, IT’S FROM A FOUNTAIN THOUGH!
