NYX Hotel launches Tequila-based Afternoon Tea
NYX Hotel launches Tequila-based Afternoon Tea

NYX Hotel in Holborn is launching the world’s first Afternoon Tea centred around a love and appreciation for the Mexican spirit, tequila. Its name? Afternoon TeaQuila, of course.

Launching on 7th April, Afternoon TeaQuila will feature a sweet and savoury menu of luxurious and Mexican-inspired delights. A decadent dark chocolate & chilli brownie will sit alongside a zesty key lime chilli posset and seasonal fruit tart while mini veggie burritos, chicken tacos, tequila grilled shrimps and stuffed baby peppers with Mexican beef will pique a palette’s interest with just the right amounts of tequila and spice.


Paying homage to the traditional afternoon tea, this sumptuous culinary experience will also include a scone accompanied by a tequila infused jam which packs both a sweet and boozy punch, and a bespoke hand-made cookie from London-based, biscuit company, Biscuiteers.

Served in the hotel’s funky, opulent restaurant on the ground floor, this fiesta on a cake stand includes ‘La Margarita’, a perfectly balanced cocktail featuring fresh lime juice, agave syrup and Volcán Tequila Blanco transporting guests to the shores of Mexico with one sip. A selection of additional margaritas is also available (see below for full menu).

Tequila and mescal are one of the fastest growing spirits categories in the UK with sales up by 36% in 2021. Clocking this growth in popularity, NYX Hotel London Holborn has not only created this decadent afternoon tea offering, but also house a tequila library with over 20 varieties, from popular serves through to more niche mezcals.

Afternoon TeaQuila Is an Afternoon Tea Alternative Worth a Shot - CALIBRE

“Tequila is such a popular spirit now,” says Suzanne Palm, Venue Director at NYX Hotel London Holborn. “Margaritas are our best-selling cocktails, so we wanted to create a fun but luxury afternoon tea offering, allowing us and our guests to celebrate our love of tequila!”


Priced at £39.00 per person, Afternoon TeaQuila will launch on Thursday 7th April (also National Burrito Day) at NYX Hotel London Holborn. Bookings can be made via the website at nyx-hotels.co.uk/food.
