Name a more iconic duo… we’ll wait.

It’s a real question to consider: What’s better than a fruit-infused, delectably salty, slightly sweet sip of a freshly concocted margarita? Maybe two of them? Maybe two of them washing down a bite of citrus marinated carne asada tacos? If we can agree to agree on this, then you’ll find sanctuary at this summer’s Tacos and Tequila event.

With over 20 tequilas for sampling and 15 restaurants cooking up their best tacos, it’s a Saturday well spent. From ABC’s brands of tequila, you’ll be able to test out that pricey tequila you’ve been eyeing, reminisce over old go-tos and establish a new favorite. Whether before the event or after, you can find all your tequila fixings at one of our stores. And you will find something – we have over 65+ Brands and 315+ bottles of tequila!

 Tequila Aisle at ABC

To get your tequila engines revved, here are four margaritas that are easy to whip up and a taco style pairing.

TIP: Preparing a small dish with salt and a small dish with water, simple syrup, or agave nectar will make rimming the edges go quickly. You can ready the glasses, then just before pouring the margarita in, put ice in the glass. Salt is so crucial to this beloved drink because the notes of citrus, light smoke and pepper in the tequila tend to be so aromatic and delicate that they need a flavor magnifier.
