Three times the fun With Chili's Rita Trio!


Oh yes, Chili's has done it! A place where you can chill and have an awesome night with family and friends. Aside from their wide selection of delectable food choices they are known for, Chili's also have a good line up of perfectly concocted cocktail drinks, taking the limelight this time is their latest offering, the "Rita Trio" Margaritas!

It was my first time at the Chili's branch in Megamall and it was totally different from the Chili's in QC that I'm used to. Before drowning my stress and kicking off my boots, they served us with some really nice appetizers!
Anyways... Moving on to the main event. The RITA TRIO! But first, a bit of history.
The name Margarita was made famous by Jose Cuervo. Which was first imported by Van Under in the USA. Their tagline, "Margarita: It's More Than a Girl's Name". But the drink they say was concocted by Carlos "Danny" Herrera in Tijuana, Mexico for a dancer named Marjorie King in 1938. Some tales points to Francisco "Pancho" Morales as the inventor of this drink in 1942. But the popular belief though is that the Margarita was invented in 1948 by Dallas socialite, Margarita Sames, during a party at her vacation home in Acapulco. Her guests included Tommy Hilton who added the drink to the beverage menu in his hotel chain. Now, how's that for some margarita history?

February 22 was declared as the annual National Margarita Day in some parts of the world. Indeed, the Margarita remains one of the most popular and enduring alcoholic drinks ever concocted, that's why in Chili's we are cheering on the RITA TRIO! "Chili’s Rita Trio" lets you choose three premium margarita flavors and offers a rock-glass sized serving of each, ice-cold for just P350 all day. Yeap, it's like an all day happy hour!

Here are the Margarita choices!
Pomegranate Margarita 
(a mix of 1800 Tequila, Absolut Citron with pomegranate syrup) 
Tropical Sunrise
(made with 1800 Tequila, Melon Liqueur, pineapple juice, sweet and sour and a splash of grenadine)
Blue Pacific Margarita 
(1800 Tequila, Cointreau and Blue Curacao)
El Nino Margarita
(1800 Tequila, Cointreau Orange Liquer, and fresh orange juice) 
Chambord 1800 Margarita 
(1800 Tequila, Cointreau Orange Liquer and Chambord)

Now take a look at those amazing and vibrant colors! I had like around three before I stopped to take a water break. No reason to wait for the National Margarita day or Cinco de Mayo! I would have to agree with that!

The drinks are served hand-shaken with ice, or frozen. Whichever way you want to enjoy it, it really is a great way to end the busy busy day.
