One of the best things about summer is how wonderful an ice-cold cocktail tastes, and few cocktails are as refreshing as the lovely margarita! Just the right amount of sour, just the right amount of sweet – the classic margarita is the perfect accompaniment to a day in the sun, delicious Latin cuisine, or an afternoon relaxing poolside. In other words, there’s really no time (outside of operating heavy equipment) that sipping one isn't a good idea. Check out our four favorite spots for one near Fusion Apartments.
Puesto Park Place Irvine
Puesto Park’s perfect little margaritas are available in a variety of styles, all made with high-quality tequila – except for the Watermelon Margarita, which is made with Del Maguey Vida mezcal, for a touch of smoke. The signature Puesto Perfect with a Grand Marnier float is a sure winner. Or try the Pink Cadillac. The addition of hibiscus gives it a pretty pink color and adds a little extra refreshment to the experience.
Wahoo’s Fish Taco
A well-known chain that’s probably already all over your radar, Wahoo’s margaritas are known for their tart flavor and strong tequila bite. Go for the Classic or the Guavarita. You can’t go wrong.
El Torito Mexican Restaurant
El Torito has a whole menu for just margaritas, and it makes sense. Options include the Signature, served up and on ice, a Rose Margarita with a secret ingredient you’ll never guess (it’s rose), and the top shelf El Dueno Margarita (nickname “The Owner”) which comes with a tiny bottle of Grand Marnier drifting upside down at its center. And there are six other equally amazing options to choose from.
Andrei’s Conscious Cuisine & Cocktails
Andrei’s take on the margarita is called El Fuego, and fire is right. This unique spin combines agave and fresh, house-made sweet and sour with silver tequila that has been infused with spicy jalapeno and tropical pineapple. Sip one on their elegant patio while you munch on tempura-battered fish tacos and black Angus beef rolls.
