The Best Margaritas in Los Angeles
No one is quite sure where the margarita came from. Was the classic cocktail of tequila, lime juice and orange liqueur created in honor of a well-heeled Dallas socialite, or first mixed up for an alcohol-sensitive showgirl? Or did it simply evolve from an existing drink, perhaps the sidecar?
However it came about, the margarita has since taken off. The ubiquitous cocktail can be found in cheesy chain restaurants, laid-back cantinas and haute hotel bars, whether on the rocks with a salted rim, in a frozen slush, mixed up with seasonal produce or updated with modernist flourishes.
In honor of National Margarita Day, February 22, here are some of the many versions the Southland has to offer. Let us know your favorite margarita destinations in the comments.
