"The Presidente Margarita's unique taste and fun, head-turning presentation is why guests absolutely love this drink and we serve more than 135,000 gallons each year," said Edithann Ramey, vice president of marketing for Chili's Grill & Bar. "We invite all of our guests who have made this drink so popular to come into our restaurants on Oct. 21 to celebrate its milestone birthday with us."
Hand-shaken 25 times on the way to the table, the signature beverage combines Sauza® Conmemorativo® Tequila, Patrón Citrónge® Premium Orange Liqueur and Presidente® Brandy.
"The Presidente Margarita is not just your typical margarita," said Sara Fasolino, chief spirits sommelier for Chili's Grill & Bar. "This one-of-a-kind beverage includes a special touch – Presidente Brandy – an ingredient aged for three years in white oak and not found in most margarita recipes. It's what gives the drink layers of flavor and dimension."
For guests looking to enhance the flavors of the Presidente Margarita, Fasolino recommends pairing the beverage with the following items from Chili's Fresh Tex™, Fresh Mex menu:
- Tableside Guacamole with Chopped Bacon & Crumbled Queso Fresco – The exotic smokiness of the tequila blends with the sweet acidity of the Patrón Citrónge Premium Orange Liqueur to make the flavors of the creamy avocado and spicy jalapeño explode.
- Prime Rib Tacos – The richness of the Prime Rib balances with the medium body of the Presidente Margarita, and its acidity blends with the tacos' cheeses. The Presidente Brandy adds just enough body to the margarita to make the chimichurri in the meat pop.
- Lighter Choices 6 oz. Classic Sirloin with Grilled Avocado – Red meat and tannin balance each other. Throw in the flavor of the grilled avocado and taste the smoky flavors meld together.
