Pour one out for some of the best margaritas in the Pacific Northwest! With National Margarita Day coming up on Feb. 22, now’s the perfect time to get your plans in order for the boozy holiday and indulge in a few of Washington’s most beloved margs. Here are the five best margaritas to sip on the next time you’re in Seattle.
Top Shelf Margarita at El Camino
El Camino serves up some of Washington state’s very best Mexican fare. And the menu is elevated even more by the Seattle hotspot’s eclectic margarita and drinks selection—which includes the Top Shelf Margarita, a premier drink crafted with Fortaleza Reposado, Pierre Ferrand Orange Curacao, Grand Mariner and fresh-squeezed lime.
Passionfruit Margarita at Nacho Borracho
Capitol Hill’s own cantina, Nacho Borracho, is the place to for some of the most festive, frozen and on-tap cocktails in the entire Pacific Northwest. The joint’s Passionfruit Marg is a particular favorite, with Pink Guava Moscow Mule, Coconut Dark and Stormy and Avocado Margarita also available.
Blood Orange Margarita at Barrio
The fruity flavors of a classic marg come to life in the Blood Orange Margarita—served fresh and on tap at Seattle’s own kitchen and agave bar, Barrio. The delicate drink seamlessly mixes reposado tequila, blood orange juice and lime juice.
La Fiona Margarita at Poquitos
You just can’t beat a night out at Poquitos. Whether you’re stopping in for the environment, the upscale Mexican fare or (of course) the flavorful margaritas, you’re in for an unforgettable experience. The La Fiona has proven to be a cocktail fave, made with habanero-infused tequila, passion fruit purée and agave.
Cucumber Margarita at Red Star Taco Bar
Embrace a more refreshing spirits flavor with Red Star Taco Bar’s iconic Cucumber Margarita—crafted with Arette Blanco and elevated by muddled cucumbers.
