Love Mexican food? What about Mexican drinks?
If bebidas or cervezas sound familiar to you then you probably do. Popular bebidas in Mexican cuisine in Melbourne, are Margaritas, Tequila, Mezcal, Sangria, Mexican Beers and liqueur coffee.
These drinks are a part of the cultural experience and help compliment the spicy Mexican flavours from a variety of popular Mexican dishes. Fiesta described how the Margarita was named on their Facebook page and a previous blog post on The Origin of Tequila.
Melbourne Mexican restaurants have a range of different beverages for you to enjoy however, you are probably wondering what makes Fiesta different? It is their infused tequila with flavours such as Pomegranate, Watermelon, Strawberry, Mango & Melon but also their Mega Margaritas (great to share). The margaritas have a variety of choices including sour, anise or sweet. The mega margaritas are great for banquette groups as they are served in a fishbowl glass or jug.
For those who are wanting something non-alcoholic, Fiesta has drinks such as Mexican Punch, Virgin Daiquiri, Virgin Margarita and traditional soft drinks, mineral water and juices for you to enjoy.
Fiesta also has an extensive range of Australian and New Zealand varietals for our wine lovers including Chardonnay, Pinot Grigo, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot; with labels such as Rothbury Estate, Bay of Stone and Lindeman. A traditional Mexican drink made using wine is Sangria. At Fiesta they make a red wine based sangria with apple juice, orange juice, fresh fruit, lemonade and ice. If you haven’t tried their sangria you are certainly missing out!
To quench your thirst during spring and summer, Fiesta has a selection of Mexican cervezas (beers) including Dos Equis, Sol, Corona and Pacifico. If you haven’t tried a Mexican beer before in Melbourne Dos Equis has ‘a crisp, refreshing, light-bodied malt-flavour’, Sol has ‘a crisp, clean taste and is perfect with spicy foods’, Corona has ‘a smooth refreshing taste with a malt and hop aroma, great with a lime or lemon wedge’ and Pacifico is a ‘bright and aromatic with lashing of lemon zest beer’.
