National Tequila Day: how to get free cocktails at Flight Club Manchester this weekend

Franklin & Sons are giving away free cocktails to celebrate National Tequila Day on Sunday 24 July.

To celebrate National Tequila Day, Franklin & Sons are giving away over a thousand free cocktails in Flight Club venues across the UK this Sunday (25 July).

All you have to do is book in for brunch at one of the chosen venues, and you will receive a free Paloma cocktail - while stocks last.

A Paloma is the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico - sitting above the Margarita.

It is also becoming more popular in the UK, seeing an apparent 54% increase in interest this past year.

The cocktail contains 50ml Patrón Reposado Tequila, 10ml lime juice and 10ml agave syrup, and is topped with Franklin & Sons pink grapefruit soda.

Franklin & Sons are working in partnership with Patrón Tequila and Flight Club to give visitors the chance to try this refreshing, fruity cocktail for National Tequila Day.

To enjoy a free Paloma this Sunday, book in at Manchester’s Flight Club on 98 King Street.

Franklin & Sons are the makers of premium mixers, and creators of the Pink Grapefruit Soda featured in the Paloma.

Participants also have the chance to win 90 minutes of social darts for up to 12 guests plus a £300 bar tab to spend on food and drinks at Flight Club.

All you have to do is upload a picture of your Paloma to Instagram, tag @franklinandsons and use the hashtag #remarkabledrinks to share your cocktail.

How to make a Paloma

Franklin & Sons’ Sam Coles said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Patrón Tequila and Flight Club to celebrate National Tequila Day, drinking Mexico’s favourite cocktail – the tequila-based, refreshing Paloma.

“It’s been fantastic to see the Paloma cocktail rise in popularity across the UK over the last year, as the serve has made its way out of city bars and become the up-and-coming drink to make at events and parties this summer.

“This refreshing cocktail, thought to be first created in the town of Tequila, is often seen as the most popular cocktail in Mexico, above the well-known Margarita, and is massively growing in popularity here in the UK as many discover its refreshing flavours.

“If you can’t make it down to a Flight Club or Electric Shuffle venue this Sunday, don’t miss out - the Paloma is easy to make at home using just three ingredients!

“Add 50ml of Patrón tequila, 10ml lime juice, and 10ml of agave syrup into a highball glass, fill with ice and stir well. My personal preference is to use a reposado tequila for more complexity and colour in the drink. Top with Franklin & Sons Pink Grapefruit Soda and garnish with a wedge of pink grapefruit for the perfect serve.”
