I could also be a meals reviewer, however I do attempt to partake in philanthropy each probability I get. So right here I stand earlier than you to tell you that Chipotle sells Patrón margaritas. You are welcome.
Chipotle started promoting these unhealthy boys in April 2013, which suggests we have all been residing in the dead of night for over three years now. Taking a web page from the Paradiso Women’ handbook, the Mexican meals chain added a hand-shaken agave nectar, lime-lemon juice, Patrón tequila margarita to its menu along with the pre-existing lowbrow margarita it already provided. The previous goes for wherever between $6.50 and $8.00, and the latter is round $4.50.
After studying this, I used to be cruisin’ for a boozin’, naturally, and determined I might test them out. Warning: the Chipotle staff will make you purchase meals alongside along with your margarita, therefore the chips and guacamole within the background of the images. So this could undoubtedly not be your pregame pit cease. I assume they do not desire a bunch of trashed prospects overtaking their retailer…odd? This additionally means you must really put together to spend not less than $12 for Cocktail & Co. Be happy to order off the secret menu as nicely.
I can confirm that these Patrón margaritas are hand-shaken. I noticed the cashier rattling the shaker behind the counter with my very own two eyes, that and the befuddled look he gave me once I ordered a margarita alone at 2:30 p.m.
I digress, however the margarita wasn’t nice, and contemplating I am a university scholar, that is actually saying one thing. Possibly this “lime-lemon juice” they’re utilizing is Minute Maid as a result of let me let you know, it would not style very contemporary. And perhaps they had been simply involved about my nicely being with me ordering a margarita mid-afternoon so that they purposely in the reduction of on the Patrón, nevertheless it wasn’t very robust.
On high of being a bit synthetic tasting, there was no salt or lime wedge. A margarita with out lime is like Thanksgiving with out turkey, for my part, so I used to be displeased. Additionally, they pulled a Starbucks
and crammed the cup with a bit an excessive amount of ice, leaving me feeling considerably shorted. I might contemplate asking for mild ice subsequent time.
Is that this the most effective margarita you will have? No. And whether it is, that is unhappy, and you must in all probability attempt my dad’s. However will it fulfill your margarita cravings? Completely. And who would not wish to sometimes high off a bomb burrito bowl or quesarito with a cup o’ marg?
Just a few meals for thought. Or, uh, drink for thought.
Would I like to recommend? Yeah? Nah? Nah
