Callooh Callay will be hosting a teq-KILLA pop-up from April 9th – May 18th as they bring you the the Jubjub. The award winning Shoreditch cocktail bar will be home to their very own authentic Mexican cantina with Jose Cuervo tequila cocktails and all your favourite Mexican street food. Each week will see a different menu and a different theme being showcased. So, think of everything great about Mexico… alcoholic slushies (ok that might just be a London thing), Luchadores, Mariachi, Cinco de Mayo, Dia de los Muertos, Mexico World Cup 1986, cinema, nachos, tacos, sombreros, sugar skulls, but mainly…. tequila.
For nearly 6 weeks Callooh Callay will be the home of Cantina de Cuervo.
There are four drinks that will stay on the menu each week (Batanga, Paloma, Margarita, Deconstructed Sangrita) but other than that there'll be 6 brand spanking new cocktails each week, including a tequila slushy, and a Mexican street food menu will be running throughout. There will be plenty on during the six weeks so make sure you read what's on below and pick the right one... or if you're a true tequila fan, head down to all the events... I'll see you there.
