The UK’s first Patrón Paloma Week comes to Manchester: what is it and where can you celebrate it?

The Patrón Paloma Week will feature bespoke cocktails and paired food at selected venues across Manchester

Touted as ‘the official cocktail of summer 2021’ by The Sunday Times, the Paloma is quickly becoming a popular fixture on cocktail menus across the UK.

A refreshing mix of tequila and grapefruit soda, the Paloma is thought to have come from the iconic town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Until not long ago, this cocktail was little known outside of Mexico, but that’s all about to change.

Now, Patrón Tequila is celebrating this zesty drink with the inaugural Patrón Paloma week which will take place in Manchester and London from 23 to 30 August.

Paloma week will feature bespoke cocktails and complimentary food at selected venues across Manchester

Bars across the city centre will take part in the first ever dedicated celebrations, each creating their own innovative twists on the Patrón Paloma. Participating venues in Manchester include Escape to Freight Island, Ducie Street Warehouse, Motley, Crazy Pedros, El Capo, Washhouse, Cottonopolis and Luck, Lust, Liquor and Burn.

As well as the bespoke Patrón Palomas, there will also be complimentary food at some of the venues on selected dates.
