Torchy’s Scallywag Margarita

The fast casual’s Scallywag Taco is being promoted in tandem with a featured Scallywag Margarita, combining 100-percent pure agave Reposado Tequila by Exotico, Triple Sec and peach habanero jam. Torchy’s serves the drink frozen with a Cap’n Crunch and coconut rim.

Mike Rypka, founder of Torchy’s Tacos, said, “It’s the taco of the month (Scallywag Taco) our fans love the most. With sweet and crunchy coconut-battered shrimp, chopped bacon, and the bright, flavorful punch of pickled onions and our scratch-made peach habanero jam, the Scallywag’s like a taste of the tropics roadtrippin’ through the South!”


The Scallywag Taco and Margarita are available until April 30, 2021.

Austin, Texas-based Torchy’s Taco’s ongoing expansion includes entering Tennessee, North Carolina and Indiana, which are new markets for the 85-unit chain, in 2021.
