There is nothing better after a hard week at work (actually, any night of the week will do) than sipping down on the salty-tequila bite of a straight-up margarita.
Now, not all margaritas are created equal, so we engaged the talents of Old Growler's Jordan Blackman (he is up for Rookie Bartender Of The Year) to give us his take on this Mexican delight.
Firstly, Jordan has created a variation on a Tommy's Margarita and the second will be hitting the Old Growler cocktail list in the near future.
Now, not only is the Old Growler awesome, and a civilised 50-metre stroll down from the Kings Cross Coca-Cola sign, but they have also started Friday Sounds—from dinner service (the kitchen do a top job) to the dance floor, with Jeremy Hansen, Marcus King, and guests providing the sounds.
