Guests will be spoiled this annual, celebratory day, with a National Tequila Day package ($120pp) available for lunch and dinner, which includes a signature Patrón margarita on arrival, a tasting flight of Patrón Roca, Silver, Reposado and Añejo, followed by a share-style menu of traditional Mexican dishes paired with wine.

The full a la carte menu is also available and tequila enthusiasts can explore a core range of Silver, Reposado and Añejo tequila, as well as the Roca Patrón and Gran Patrón luxury collections. Five, limited and numbered barrel-select tequilas, distilled exclusively for Bar Patrón, are also available, alongside the rare Patrón en Lalique Serie 1 and 2. Only 500 bottles of Lalique Serie 1 were created, and only 299 bottles of Lalique Serie 2. Each limited-edition crystal decanter costs over AU$10,000.
Bar Patrón’s signature margarita is available with Silver ($21), Roca ($30) or Platinum ($40) Patrón, which is mixed with Patrón Citronage, fresh lime juice and lime sherbet, and served in bespoke glassware with a salt rim. Happy hour prices see the signature Silver Patrón margarita available for $12 between 4pm and 6pm every day, with complimentary chips and salsa.
Meanwhile, there is no better day to indulge in a Millionaire’s Margarita ($100), which is custom-made tableside. Sit back and watch this fabulous drink come to life: inhale the aromatics as lime and agave are
hand-pressed and shaken with a trio of super-premium and rare spirits – Patrón Gran Burdeos Extra Añejo Tequila, which is aged in Premier Cru Bordeaux barrels; 150-year old, rich and luxurious Grand Marnier Cuvée du Cent Cinquantenaire; and the ‘King of Cognac’, Remy Martin Louis XIII.
This stunning margarita is double strained over an ice sphere that is adorned with a shimmer of gold leaf and freckles of native finger-lime pearls that are nitro-blasted tableside.
Rockpool Dining Group Beverage Director Ali Toghani says: “Our Millionaire’s Margarita is a tribute to the world’s highest quality, artisanal tequila made by Patrón, and a legacy of the alchemists and mixologists at Rockpool Dining Group.”
“Whether it’s this flamboyant expression of a circa 1940s favourite, our signature margarita during happy hour, or a flight of extraordinary Patrón tequilas, we have something for everyone this National Tequila Day.”
