Delicious Food Pairings for Patrón Tequila

The only pairing more desirable than tequila and the best view that Sydney can offer is tequila with a meal to complement it. A vibrant restaurant that faces the renowned Harbour Bridge should be part of everyone’s agenda to unwind at the end of a long day.

When it comes to food, cocktails, and ambience, Bar Patrón is unmatched in all aspects. Offering a vast range of Patrón tequila, margaritas and international wines, this modern Mexican restaurant and bar is nestled in the heart of Sydney and synonymous with fun-filled gatherings and celebrations.

Pairing exclusive Patrón tequila-mixed drinks with quintessential Mexican favourites is our bread and butter: let us blow you away with a share-style menu as you embrace the Mexican estilo de vida! See which foods go best with your favourite tequila with our list below.


Tacos

Taco Tuesdays are famed for a reason: a traditional Mexican dish made with a tortilla of corn or flour and filled with beef, chicken, or vegetables, these are the ideal handheld food. A taco in one hand and a drink in the other? The perfect way to begin any night.

To enjoy tacos with the true Mexican spirit, we recommend pairing them with something tequila based, such as the classic Paloma. While tacos bring together the salty and savoury flavour bases beautifully, the long-lasting finish of Patrón Roca’s Reposado balances them out with a sweet element. With notes of ginger, caramel, and mushroom, this tequila cuts through the heaviness of the meat with a light hand.


Ceviche

For beautifully fresh and seasoned raw fish like ceviche, there is no combination more suited than our Patrón SIlver or Patrón Roca’s Añejo. This South American dish, typically made with raw fish, shrimp, or scallops, is best known for its bright and tangy flavour profile thanks to the lime juice and cilantro.

Refreshing and with a slight spicy bite to it, the velvety finish of Patrón Roca’s Añejo is a match made in heaven for ceviche. This medium-gold tequila is distilled in small batches and aged for around 14 months, bringing out hints of wood, nuts, raisins, and grapefruit that pair beautifully with seafood. Adventurous palates are sure to find enjoyment in the combination.


Al Carbon

Translating directly to ‘meat cooked over charcoal’, a true fiesta-like atmosphere is brought about with our grilled beef, lamb or fish, wrapped in warm, house-made tortillas and garnished with coriander and lime. Pull up a leather stool that overlooks the harbour and Circular Quay, and pair our delicious al carbon with the luxurious Gran Patrón Extra Añejo.

Complete your evening by selecting from the Smoky, Platinum, Piedra, and Burdeos variants — each with a distinct Bordeaux wine flavour or a sweet, yet complex blend with agave notes. It’s the perfect way to top off any night.
