A mile-long Margarita bar crawl returns to Manchester this month, with a host of venues set to take part.

Honouring National Margarita Day on 22 February, the week-long celebration will see iconic brand El Tequileño (aka Mexico’s Best Kept Secret) featured in different cocktail creations across the city.

Partnering up with Maldon Salt (to dust round the rim of your Marg), Manchester institutions including Stray Bar, Madre, New Century, Fierce and Smithfield Social will all participate with their own signature takes on the classic tequila and lime.

Whether you’re a fan of the spicy variety, or enjoy a refreshing frozen Marg, there will be plenty of signature mixes to try between 19 and 25 February. The best part, all bars on the mile will be discounting Margaritas to £6 on Margarita Day (22 February) itself.

Stray will showcase distinguished blends like their Tomato Vine Margarita, Madre will be serving up flights of the good stuff, while Fierce are mixing it up with beer to make the Cervezarita.

Of course, you don’t have to drink all the Margs in one day, you can create your own version of the crawl by picking your favourites. Many of the venues taking part are also adding margherita pizzas to the mix, so you can grab a slice with your tipple.

Fans craving a bit more insight into the origins of their favourite drink can learn how its made from very special guest Tony Salles, who is the grandson of El Tequileño creator Don Jorge Salles Cuervo. Tony will meet those on the mile at The Daisy to chat about all things tequila on National Margarita Day itself.

Following the inaugural event last year, Margarita Mile’s week-long extravaganza will now extend to both London and Leeds for 2024.

Here’s a selection from the 22 venues taking part and their offering during the week of Margarita Mile.
