Patron Celebrates International Margarita Day With Museum Pop-Up

Tequila brand Patrón celebrated the recent International Margarita Day with a pop-up margarita museum in London exploring the history behind the popular drink.

The Patrón Museo de Margarita was held on Tuesday 22nd February in London's West End at the Noho Studios in the form of a two-hour experience which investigated the birth of the Margarita, before exploring how the tequila-based cocktail has developed through over the years from Prohibition to the origins of the 'genre-defining' Tommy's Margarita.

Those lucky enough to have managed to book a place were also treated to limited edition cocktails inspired by the past, present and future of the Margarita. These drinks included a 1920s Margarita, by Artesian's Guilla Cuccurullo; a 1930s-1940s cocktail 'Daisy' from the Patrón Perfectionists 2021 competition's UK winner Kat Stanley-Whyte, of Uno Mas bar in Edinburgh; a Margarita-style twist on the 1950s-1970s 'Blue Ocean' made by Maxim Schulte, of London's Kol; and the Blood Orange & Mint Mirror Margarita from Deano Moncrieffe, owner of London's agave spirits den. Hacha.
