A cocktail to go with your cheesy nachos?!

We were recently featured on the Mail Online in an article about the best cocktails to go with your guilty pleasure eats. Not that we endorse crappy food (we only serve the good stuff) but we do endorse cheese on pretty much everything, and Bea can whip up a cocktail to go with anything.

As Bea says in the article, quite rightly, ‘Everyone likes a spicy nacho’ – but the trick is drinking something to complement that spice.

We announced our new cocktail, The Chilipinarita in a recent blog post here. Made with pineapple juice, pineapple syrup, lime juice, two pineapple wedges, a red chilli – and of course two shots of blanco tequila, it is the perfect blend to enhance the spice, while the acid from the pineapple tempers it.

Bea says: ‘The sweet notes in the pineapple juice balances the savoury nachos and the citrus stops the dairy from the beautifully stringy cheese and the sour cream from resting in your stomach. The tequila needs no explanation. It’s frikken agave nectar from the gods.’

Bea is seldom wrong. Read the full article here.

A Sneaky Peek at a New Cocktail… the Chilipinarita!

You may or may not realise, but there are some exciting happenings at El Camion HQ at the moment. One of these things to watch out for is a brand new revamp of our cocktail list, currently being worked on by the lovely Bea Bradsell and her crew of mixology maestros.

Now, we’re not giving too much away just yet, but we can reveal that THIS will be one of the new drinks available. In fact, you can already order it, as it’s been gracing our Specials Board!

Chilli- Burro

 

Here we have┬áChilipinarita, seen alongside one of our banging burritos. Keep your eyes peeled for its appearance in The Mail online, too! And if you want to know what’s in it… well, you’ll just have to come and taste, won’t you!
