Win Tickets to Thursday's Tequila Express

The Tequila Express is this Thursday, January 29, and if you haven't already booked your passage for this voyage of food and drink, you still have a few days.

From 6 to 10 p.m., you'll board the Tequila Express (disguised as buses) and be whisked to four different restaurants in Coconut Grove and Coral Gables.

At each stop, you'll sample food and cocktails while learning about Tequila Herradura's different expressions. You'll even get a mixology lesson, so you can amaze your friends by making the perfect margarita at your next get-together. Here's a little taste of what's in store:

Talavera Cocina Mexicana

At this Coral Gables Mexican restaurant, you'll learn about the Herradura core expressions by sampling silver, reposado, and añejo tequilas, each paired with food that complement the notes from aging and locality.

Tarpon Bend Raw Bar & Grill

At Tarpon Bend, you'll learn how to build the perfect margarita. Once it's perfected, enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Peacock Garden Café

At Peacock Garden, you'll learn the difference between highland, lowland, and mixto tequilas while sipping the café's signature cocktail, made with Herradura Reposado.

Bulla Gastrobar

A welcome cocktail will greet you as you learn about the five steps of tequila-making.

The Tequila Express begins and ends at the Aragon Avenue parking garage (285 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). Tickets cost $25 and include tequila samplings, cocktails, bites, and transportation from restaurant to restaurant. You must be 21 or older to purchase tickets to this event. No refunds are available. Brown Forman will donate a percentage of proceeds to Deliver the Dream Foundation.
