Whoever decided that National Margarita Day was February 22 obviously did not look at today's weather. But if you want to get out of the cold and sip on a drink that will transport you to a warmer climate, here are the margarita deals you can score around town.
When I think of a casual Tex-Mex spot that has great chips and even better margaritas, my first thought is Chuy’s. It’s the kind of place you walk into and can immediately start to unwind. So if you want to shake off the work day or the weather, head to the place that can help you relax. For National Margarita day, guests can get $1 off their Frozen Blackberry and Frozen Blood Orange Ritas. Or, kick your drink up a notch with a $1 floater on top.
For some solid Tex-Mex and some even more solid drinks, stop by Cristina’s Fine Mexican Restaurant for a bite. They have seven margarita options that showcase a wide range of flavors. One of them is so good, they even named it after the owner. The Cristina Rita is made with 100 percent Agave el Jimador Reposado Tequila, Cointreau Liqueur and fresh lime juice. It’s poured tableside into a salted glass. Their 20-ounce house margaritas are available all day for $5 with $1 toppers of Dulce Vida Tequila.
For a serious proportion of this cocktail, head over to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Their famous fish-bowl cup brings people in every day, and today might be bigger and better than ever before. Get their 12-ounce house special margarita, frozen or on the rocks, for $2. Or order up a Corona-Rita for $6.75. Pair it with an order of their chips and queso, and maybe a few tacos, and you are in for a treat.
For a wide selection of tequila cocktails, head over to Mi Dia From Scratch. True margarita lovers know this eatery has more than 20 margaritas to choose from. To beat the weather, order up the Hell Freezes Over, made with green chile-infused herradura silver tequila, Cointreau, lime, cucumber, basil, agave nectar and dry ice. It comes out with a Hatch Pepper & Salt Blend on the rim. For National Margarita Day, guests can get their house margaritas, frozen or on the rocks, for $5. So whether you want a classic favorite or a new creation, Mi Dia is a great place to celebrate the holiday.
Who doesn’t love Torchy’s? Someone tell me because I don’t believe they are out there. Test out their bites and drinks today and take advantage of their National Margarita Day specials. Guests can enjoy $4 house margaritas all day. So stop by for a long lunch or a break after work to treat yourself to one of these chilly drinks. After a sip or two of this creation, all your worries will float away.
