WANTED: Fun-loving person to spend two years eating tacos and sampling margaritas in Mexico with same.

I’d answer that kind of ad. And let’s face it, wouldn’t you like to give that a go? If so, then you’re the sort of person that might like to try the AZTECA Margarita mix cooked up by two kindred spirits of yours, Tommy from Billinudgel and his partner Jessie from the USA.

The AZTECA Margarita founders are Byron-based long-time lovers, travel companions, chefs, business partners and drinking buddies, and Jessie and Tommy reckon that they have honed the perfect margarita  ‘making the sacrifice so you don’t have to’, as they’ve spent years in Mexico researching this stuff. Putting their bodies on the line, they’ve eaten thousands of street tacos, washed down with a thousand more margaritas, they say.

The pair met in Laos, then travelled the world together, sold authentic Mexican food at the markets in Sydney, then moved up here to sell an awesome margarita mix that they make themselves in Billinudgel, ‘using no shit ingredients, no sugar, no preservatives, no colours’.

If you think the whole Byron story has been replaced by a narrative about incrementally more successful real estate deals, then you’ve been listening to the wrong people at parties and you can come to Yum Yum Tree in New Brighton on Saturday the 15 October and/or Hoopers in Mullum on Saturday 22 October, and join Tommy and Jessie for tacos, margaritas and beers by Yulli’s.

Need margaritas before then? You don’t have to wait to meet them, you can try their stuff first. AZTECA Margarita mixes are sold in local grocers, boutiques and bottle shops across the Northern Rivers and beyond, and are available in four flavours, each made with fresh lime juice and organic blue agave nectar from Mexico. Recycling the botanicals, chilies, and flowers from the brewing, every bottle comes with a badass salt blend and makes 12+ drinks.

Are you the kind of truly fun-loving, or ‘lacking-forward-planning’ (I kindly call myself ‘spontaneous’) kind of person who, perhaps, just wants to drink margaritas without even wanting to shake it up? Then try AZTECA’s limited release pre-made margaritas, available only at local bottle shops in the Northern Rivers.

As well, if you have an event coming up and want to take your pals to Margaritaville, you can get in touch with Azteca Margarita about their mobile bar and event catering options – they’re chefs too, not just feel-good party people.
