Besides having some of the most delicious Mexican food you’ll find in NYC, Xixa is know for their signature deconstructed margarita… sounds incredible doesn’t it? One icecube, one frozen juice cube, one frozen alcohol cube all swimming together in some tequila and there you have it, a spicy and flavorful margarita! What better way to celebrate the day than with this little guy?

The Black Ant has the best Mexican cuisine with an extremely luxurious twist. The margarita’s are made with house-infused jalapeño tequila and sprinkled with chipotle salt around the rim, if you like that extra kick, this is the perfect place for you!

Mesa Coyoacan is definitely our fave spot on this list and a hotspot for locals in Williamsburg. If you love having your options open, the margarita list is endless and made with the finest house-infused tequila, fruits and juices. Step out of your comfort zone and try a flavour that isn’t the typical lime version, our favourite is watermelon!
