By Barry Wright THE TAPAS and gin and tonic tour re­turns to the streets of Ori­huela on Novem­ber 10-12.

Coun­cil­lor for tourism, Sofía Ál­varez said at the pre­sen­ta­tion: “The ob­jec­tive of the route is to give the area ex­po­sure for its gas­tro­nomic tourism, us­ing it to strengthen what peo­ple know of our mu­nic­i­pal­ity and its mon­u­ments.

“We have opted for a top qual­ity route, im­prov­ing the prizes and its value for money, so that it fills Ori­huela with life and re­vi­talises the streets.”

Be­tween them, the 24 par­tic­i­pat­ing out­lets are of­fer­ing a to­tal of 11 tra­di­tional tapas, 15 gourmet tapas, six sweet tapas, and six gin and ton­ics.

Vis­i­tors will be able to vote for their favourite of­fer­ings in five cat­e­gories: gourmet tapa, tra­di­tional tapa, sweet tapa, gin and tonic, and best es­tab­lish­ment. For the best gin and tonic and best es­tab­lish­ment cat­e­gories peo­ple can vote through so­cial net­works.

Vis­i­tors are able to get a tra­di­tional tapa and a drink for €2. Gourmet and sweet tapas and a drink are €2.50, whilst gin and tonic prices will be set by in­di­vid­ual es­tab­lish­ments.

As a bare min­i­mum the par­tic­i­pants will be serv­ing tapas from 12.00-16.00 and 20.00-23.00 on Fri­day and Satur­day and in the morn­ing only on Sun­day. Should they wish they can con­tinue serv­ing out­side of these hours.
