Chipotle Introduces New Margarita Recipe Featuring Patrón Tequila

Patron Margarita Bottle

Well how in the hell did I miss this?
Apparently back 3 years ago Chipotle started serving Margaritas with Patrón Tequila.

Chipotle Mexican Grill added premium Patrón margaritas to the menu in its U.S. restaurants.

I have never noticed in the local South Florida restaurants that they have any alcoholic beverages much less Patron Margaritas. This may change my usual Taco Tuesday to a new location for a Burrito Tuesday.

According to Denver weekly Westword, the company is testing a new beverage menu at a single location in the city it calls home, featuring a mezcal margarita, sangria, draft beer, non-alcoholic drinks, and new sodas.

The company partnered with master sommelier Richard Betts after he and Chipotle founder Steve Ells began discussing how to elevate Chipotle’s beverage menu two years ago, long before the company was afflicted with last year’s series of foodborne illness outbreaks.

Chipotle has offered beer and margaritas since it opened its first store in 1993, and boozy beverages aren’t a great fit for its workday customers, as many Chipotle locations are busiest during weekday lunches. Still, a tasty margarita for happy hour or on the weekends will be popular with some, and fans of traditional Mexican-food joints should appreciate the agua frescas.
