If you are in Mammoth during the month of August keep you ears open and prepare your taste buds for the Mammoth Margarita Festival.
The Mammoth Margarita Festival is recently conceived event in Mammoth Lakes and already proving to be a great hit on Mammoth’s summer event series, but this event is more than just festival focused on margaritas. The Mammoth Margarita Festival is also an event allowing guests to taste tequilas from 20 different companies, listen to variety of Latin inspired music and enjoy food from Mammoth’s own Gomez’s Restaurant. Let’s not forget dancing in the Village at Mammoth Plaza. Friday and Saturday the Village will be filled with sounds of Salsa, Flamenco, and Latin Jazz/Rock… Here’s just a sample: Mammoth Margarita Festival Music.
With more than 20 tequilas on site and most having an Anejo, Reposado or Blanco, this means 20-60 bottles of tequila will be available for tasting. While it’s assumed no one person will be so brave as to taste each bottle, the wide variety will ensure the ability to learn about different tequilas and sample varietals from around Mexico.
If your interest is in tequila tasting, make sure to purchase tickets online and early as they do tend to sell out prior to the event. Each taster is given a wristband and a snifter from which to sample their agave inspired spirits. Roam from booth to booth and make sure to grab food along the way. If 40-60 samples of tequila is not enough for your pallet, just sit down at the bar inside Gomez’s Restaurant and Mexican Cantina adjacent to the plaza… they have more than 500 bottles of tequila on site, but be careful while drinking at the 8054 foot elevation as it can result in quicker alcohol educed effects.
