If you thought Tequila was just a late night shot taken with salt and lemon – think again.

Mexican restaurant and tequila connoisseurs Cielo Blanco are launching a weekend long fiesta (a day just isn’t long enough) to celebrate World Tequila Day – a global celebration of the popular spirit that takes place every year on Friday July 24th.

Located in Trinity Leeds, Cielo Blanco’s sun-trapped outdoor terrace will be transformed in to a Margarita Garden complete with Margarita cart stocked with fruit combinations such as papaya and coconut, lychee and pineapple, mango and passion fruit. From Friday 24th – Sunday 26th, tequila fans will be able to pick their favourite fruity combination and Cielo Blanco will whizz up a large jug of frozen Margarita to enjoy in the sun for £20.

From Friday – Saturday, 12pm – 1am, Cielo Blanco, in association with luxury tequila brand Herradura, will be throwing a tequila fiesta for visitors to kick start the weekend.

Party animals can carry on the fiesta at Cielo Blanco’s sister bar Neon Cactus. 

Launched in 2013, Cielo Blanco has established itself as one of Leeds’ coolest restaurants and drinking spots. Serving fresh street food style cuisine influenced by traditional Mexican recipes, the modern menu is perfect for sharing with friends and family. Guests need not be fooled by the relaxed and friendly atmosphere – the expert staff at Cielo Blanco takes its menu seriously taking regular trips to Mexico to uncover new ideas and recipe inspiration. 

As part of the festivities, Cielo Blanco will also be giving away exclusive prizes on its Facebook page with giveaways including a Herradura tequila hamper.
