Best Margaritas in the Valley

…according to SSF!

Cinco de Mayo is quickly approaching, and it is never too soon to decide where you’ll indulge in a sweet, tangy, delicious margarita. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorites….boxcar 3

Mountain Standard | Vail Village

MS marg

The Standard Margarita comes from Sweet Basil’s recipe for the Perfect Margarita…need we say more? Mountain Standard has an amazing cocktail list and the gents behind the bar are always willing to experiment, BUT their margarita doesn’t need any tweaking. Fresh lime juice, simple syrup, Cointreau, drool. Sweet Basil naturally has a delicious margarita as well but will be closed until Saturday, May 6.

Boxcar | Avon

Simple and light, the Boxcar margarita comes with a spicy surprise… a candied jalapeno and orange zest on the rim. Even extra special.. the margarita is only $5 during Boxcar’s happy hour from 4-6 every day.
