Make your own Margarita
You simply cannot throw a proper Mexican Fiesta without good Tequila, so make everyone merry with a pitcher of Margarita! We are giving you our classic Tommy’s Margarita recipe.
45ml - Arquitecto Blanco Tequila
30ml-freshly squeeze lime juice
15ml -Agave (Can be found in major supermarkets)
First pour 45ml of your Arquitecto Blanco Tequila into a shaker, with 30ml of freshly squeezed lime juice and 15ml of agave syrup. Shake well for 30 secs. Rim half the serving glass with pink salt, and strain margarita mix over a block of ice in a glass and garnish with dehydrated lime wedge.
Dress up your party
Create a casual and colourful setting for your Mexican Christmas dinner and keep your guests entertained with fun games and a festive table setting. Dress your table with Mexican-styled table runners or colourful napkins. Use red and yellow flower cactus-like succulents or Marigold flowers as center-pieces. Add authenticity by hanging a few sombreros and ponchos here and there to keep things fun for your guests.
Throw in some maracas, lotteria card games and other fun activities to keep your guests entertained will you serve up a feast. For a festive touch and atmosphere, brighten your table by placing jars with fairy lights around your table setting to lift the Christmas spirit!
Have a Heart-warming Mexmas Dinner
This year Executive Chef Randy has prepared a special Mexmas menu perfect for dinner with the familia or lunch with office colleagues. Begin the feast with three starters; corn chips served with salsa and guacamole, Mexcian street-style grilled corn and cured red snapper ceviche.
Choose from four different mains, all served on a platter for sharing. Herb crusted turkey prepared with sage, oregano and coriander crust, served with a traditional mole sauce with over 20 ingredients. Agave gammon ham, glazed in cinnamon with a side of pineapple salsa. Citrus chili, fire-grilled angus beef fajitas served with corn tortillas. Last but not least our vegetarian option, pickled pumpkin, goats cheese spinach enchiladas with a side of soft corn tortillas.
All mains are grouped with three sides for sharing, refried beans, Mexican rice and ensalada rustica. Continue merry making into the night with a flourless chocolate cake topped with Mexican vanilla ice cream. Special dietary requirements can be catered for.
