What better way to kick off Elite Events in
Auckland than with Tacos, Sangria and a whole lot of Tequila!
Hosted upstairs in the private room at Mexico
Britomart, Yelpers were led through a Margarita Masterclass with bartender and margarita
guru, Russ, before trying their hand at their own creative concoctions thanks to tequila sponsor, Jose Cuervo Tradicional.
Armed with a boston shaker, a bottle of Tequila and a table full of mixing ingredients including cloves, tamarind, jalapenos and lychees, Yelpers were challenged to
come up with their own imaginative twist on the classic cocktail. Plum, clove and
cinnamon margarita anyone?
And just to make sure things didn't get to loco, Yelpers were treated to mouth-wateringly good tapas, Mexico-style. All the food was fresh and flavoursome and devoured in a flash but the crowd favourites were definitely the fried chicken with magic powder &
jalapeno mayonnaise and the three cheese quesadilla which was served
with a smokey, blackened onion crema dipping sauce.
A huge thankyou to Mimi, Matt and their team at Mexico and to our tequila sponsor Jose Cuervo for making the evening possible!
