A mile-long Margarita crawl is coming to Leeds next week in celebration of the iconic cocktail

Nineteen venues, and a whole lot of Margaritas to celebrate National Margarita Day.

If you’re a fan of Margaritas, then you will most definitely want to keep reading.

As of next week, from Monday 19 – Sunday 25 February 2024, a mile-long Margarita crawl aka the Margarita Mile is coming to the city.

Why? Well it’s all down to El Tequileño. Produced in the Mexican town of Tequila, the award-winning Tequila brand together with everyone’s favourite posh salt, Maldon Salt, are helping venues across Leeds to create the very best tasting Margarita cocktails.

The Margarita Mile started last year in Manchester with a bang, and now Leeds is getting in on the action.

Cheers’ing big to National Margarita Day on 22 February, nineteen of the coolest venues across Leeds will be showcasing their very best El Tequileño Margaritas and other El Tequileño tequila cocktails for just one week only.

The bars, which include fan-favourites like Tabula Rasa and Neon Cactus, will all be putting their own signature flair on the drink – so you can make it your own mission to decide whose is best.

Challenge accepted if you ask us.

Embark on the mile-long crawl and drink as many or as little as you like, but remember you’ve only got one week to sample them all and you should always drink responsibly. 

And it doesn’t stop there, there will also be some exciting events taking place at the venues during the week for you to get involved in.

On Wednesday 21, The Domino Club will be hosting ‘Music To Drink Margaritas To’, a raucous version of their usual live music evenings, so grab your sombreros and get ready for a fiesta at one of the city’s best speakeasies. 

Fancy making the drink yourself? Well you’re in luck as The Liquor Studio will be hosting a consumer Masterclass on National Margarita Day itself, 22 February.

Closing the celebrations, The Watermark will be hosting ‘La Loteria’, a wild version of Mexican Bingo – expect lots of fun and frivolity which you’ll want to raise a Margarita to.

And if you’d like to have a guided experience of the mile, then The Gin Journey crew will be hosting a Mini Margarita journey on Saturday 24 where you can drink 3 different Margaritas and 3 El Tequileño tasters in 3 of the city’s bars with an expert guide. Find out more here.

With the hospitality industry suffering greatly in recent times, the Margarita Mile is a fantastic initiative to help venues draw in and generate business.

Steffin Oghene, Global Ambassador for El Tequileño, says: “El Tequileño encourages everyone, from cocktail fans to tequila lovers to those who want to learn more about quality craft spirits, to get out on the mile to try a Margarita.

“We are super proud to be extending the Margarita Mile to 3 key UK cities in 2024 including Leeds. Tony and I look forward to meeting the people of Leeds out on the mile!”
