According to Mr. Shyam Mandal, Manager, Chilis, Chandigarh, “The Fresh Mex Bowls launched in the fiesta combine well with the Margaritas available. Margarita is essentially a Tequila – a Mexican alcoholic beverage based cocktail. All our Tequila is imported from Mexico; Chili’s special Sweet & sour is the other USP of the Margaritas on the menu at the festival.” Cautions Sidharth, “ Margarita is a dry drink and can parch your throat, so the drinks have added to them salt and lemon which counters this effect.”
The announcement of the Mexican fiesta saw Chilis Signature mix which uses a custom made shaker that mixes the ingredients well and gives that much needed finish to the drink being demonstrated by the Mixologist. In this direction a unique Monsoon special Margarita mixology & tasting session, with the expert was conducted. A flaring & juggling activity added zing to the event.
