Library Bar's Chili Margarita

I’m so deep in the throes of my no-drinking-for-Lent experiment that I forgot that it’s National Margarita Day today. Fortunately the tweeps on Twitter reminded me. So I came up with a short list of suggestions on some tasty ways to celebrate this very important holiday.**

  1. Copa d’Oro’s $5 Tommy’s Margarita during the bar’s all-night happy hour on Mondays

  2. Malo’s Spicy Cucumber Margarita ($11): tequila, lime, cucumber, agave and Rittero hot sauce

  3. Roger Room’s Tijuana Brass ($13): Tres Reyes Blanco, lime, agave, cucumber foam

  4. **Casita del Campo’s Cadillac margarita ($8)

  5. Library Bar’s Chili Margarita: Patron Silver tequila, agave, Cointreau, pinch of cayenne, lime juice, fresh Mandarin juice with a Mezcal misting on top.

  6. The Bazaar’s Salt Air Margarita ($16): Classic margarita topped with salt air.

Another happy hour option: El Carmen has $4 margaritas for their 5-7pm weekday happy hour (courtesy of The Happy Hour Tour).
