London Cocktail Week: Cuervo’s Hacienda

Prior to my evening at the Cuervo’s Hacienda at The Hoxton, I had always associated tequila with hot summers and the beach but I am pleased to say that on this occasion I was proved entirely wrong. Whilst the opening of London Cocktail Week saw a severe drop in temperature, the heat at The Hoxton was palpable with two tequila based cocktails in particular filling the cold spot excellently.

In aid of the winter months which as much as we hate to admit are slowly but surely becoming a reality, I was delighted to try the Autumnal Tradicional Sour Margarita which was infused with figs and finished off with an egg white foam. For someone who is yet to purchase a suitable winter coat, this was exactly what I needed. The fig had a real home comfort feeling which combined with the subtle warmth of the tequila, warmed me up a treat, providing a much needed respite from what I can only describe as a scene from Frozen outside. It was surprisingly light to drink and a refreshing change from those student days of Sainsbury’s basics tequila that quite literally burn your throat. To be honest though, I would not expect anything less from the oldest and best-selling tequila in the world. 

Suitably warmed and after trying some of the Mexican themed treats on offer (never say no to nachos), embracing my inner ice princess I could not resist a taste of the Frozen Margarita. Admittedly more suited to the summer months, this was a refreshing drink that suited the pop-up tequila garden and best of all did not bring on brain freeze.

The Hacienda will be open all week long offering £4 cocktails to anyone with a LCW wristband.
