Tony Roma’s® Shakes Things Up with National Romarita® Week

Why have just a margarita when you can enjoy Tony Roma’s Hand-Shaken Classic Romarita all week long for just $4

ORLANDO, Fla. – February 16, 2018 – Romacorp, Inc., the parent company of Tony Roma’s®, is giving fans a great reason to enjoy National Margarita Day (Feb. 22nd) with a week-long celebration of its Classic Romarita® from February 19th through February 25th. Fans can enjoy Tony Roma’s Classic Romarita, a delicious hand-shaken cocktail that offers a unique twist on the traditional margarita, for just $4 all week long. The perfect complement to Tony Roma’s world-famous Baby Back Ribs, fans can “salt the rim” of their week by enjoying this irresistible deal at participating Tony Roma’s locations in the USA and around the globe.

“National Margarita Day might be a great day, but National Romarita Week at Tony Roma’s is where the REAL excitement can be found,” said Jim Rogers, Chief Marketing Officer for Romacorp, Inc. “Our Romarita has been a fan favorite for more than 20 years and is the perfect hand-shaken elixir to enjoy with any of our world-famous dishes, from our signature Baby Back Ribs to our Kickin’ Shrimp, Onion Loaf and more. The Romarita is a timeless drink, and certainly deserving of a week-long celebration in our restaurants around the world!”

While many people believe the margarita originated in Mexico, the exact origin and inventor of the margarita is unknown. Many stories say it was first popularized in San Diego about 70 years ago. In the 1990’s, Tony Roma’s decided to put its own unique stamp on the traditional drink with the introduction of the popular Romarita line of beverages – and fans have been sipping away around the world ever since!

“Our Classic Romarita is served with a salted rim and top-shelf liquors including Sauza® Gold Tequila, Cointreau® and fresh and zesty garnishes, making it an invigorating cocktail that quenches any craving,” said Chef Bob Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage. “This special drink offers guests a tangy and sweet flavor profile that pairs perfectly with a large variety of our favorite entrees, including our world-famous Baby Back Ribs, savory Grilled Shrimp Skewers or even our tasty Onion Loaf.”
