When the craving for a margarita hits, there’s ab-so-LUTELY no stopping it. Whether it’s margarita season or not, thanks to the many Mexican restaurants giving the people what they want year-round, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from. And then there are serving anything BUT Mexican but are also bringing a decent, sometimes top-of-the-line marg game. All that to say… margs are versatile, y’all.
Frozen, on the rocks, salt or no salt, specialty flavors, classy craft cocktail-style – there’s something for everyone on this list – it just depends what you’re looking for.
This is one of those topics that is highly subjective, depending on the *vibe* you’re going for. Perfectly crafted and served in a rocks glass? XL and keep ’em coming? With a side of endless chips? Tell me you need a vaca without telling me you need a vaca? The versions are endless, and there’s no right answer.
