As the saying goes, good things come in threes, which is why we just had to take part in Cocktails in the City for a third year running. After the success of last year, we knew we had to up our game and there was only one spirit to help us do that – tequila! We got straight on the phone to our friends Cazcabel and just like that #TEAMTEQUILA was born.

Despite the weekend being more like ‘Cocktails in the Rain’ the great British public were out in force and in great spirit. We offered shelter under our Tequila Shack and through the medium of storytelling and the help of a little tequila we were transporting guests to the sunnier climates of the Jalisco Mountains, Mexico.

Our signature serve this year was our Frozen Lemon Sherbet Margarita, a blend of Big Chill’s homemade zesty lemon sorbet and Cazcabel’s Blanco and Reposado tequila. The cocktail was served in an ice cream cup complete with spoon and sugar lemon slices. We also treated guests to our Big Mexican Garden Party cocktail and tequila take on a classic Pimms and introduced them to Sanchez & Vinnie (AKA the traffic light chasers).

People not only went going wild for our cocktails but also for our tote bags, everyone wanted to be a part of #TEAMTEQUILA. We had queues round the square for our Loteria Darts, where getting four in a row equaled prizes and we had lots of happy winners.

Weather aside, it was another fantastic event, we want to say a BIG Chill thank you to Cocktails in the City for being fabulous hosts and to Cazcabel for completing our #TEAMTEQUILA dream team.

The next big event in the Big Chill calendar is the forth coming August Bank Holiday weekend. Big Chill Bar and Big Chill House will be celebrating carnival in style check out their ‘What’s On’ pages for more information.
