Like margaritas? This Mexican restaurant may hire a margarita taste tester
We pitted a $250 Margaritaville drink machine against a $400 Vitamix blender to see which made the tastier frozen beverages.
Do you love margaritas? Is your favorite road-trip song “100 Bottles of Tequila on the Wall?”
If your boss told you your career was “on the rocks,” would you take that as a compliment?
If so, then On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina has a job for you — margarita guru.
The Mexican casual dining restaurant has launched a nationwide search for an experienced, self-driven and fun-loving Chief Margarita Officer (CMO) to join its team.
Benefits include a $1,000-per-day salary*, free chips and salsa while dining at On the Border, the "coolest business cards ever" and more.
“We’ve been serving up the best margaritas in the business for over 36 years, so you better believe we’re taking this position very seriously,” said Matt Hood, president and CEO for On The Border.
The right candidate "can uphold the proud tradition of On The Border being the destination for the world’s greatest margaritas," he said. "And who could pass up a $1,000 payday, especially when that day is all about margaritas?”
As CMO, you will be responsible for representing, and celebrating, mankind’s greatest gift – the margarita.
The ideal candidate must be able to:
- Mix margaritas on short notice
- Distinguish between fresh-squeezed lime juice and canned limeade
- Make a solid argument for why salt is better than a sugar rim
While the CMO loves great margaritas, he or she must also understand that moderation is key to a great next day and encourage others to indulge responsibly.
*Okay, here’s the fine print: $1,000 daily award good for one day only – Feb. 22, 2019, National Margarita Day. The winner will receive $1,000 in On the Border gift cards.
