10 Best Places to Celebrate National Margarita Day in The Palm Beaches

10 Best Places to Celebrate National Margarita Day in The Palm Beaches

Enjoy a cool refreshing margarita on a hot, sunny day in The Palm Beaches!

Every February 22, we celebrate National Margarita Day to pay homage to the popular Mexican cocktail made with triple sec, tequila, and lime juice. Since margaritas pair very well with South Florida’s heat, we have rounded up 10 Mexican restaurants serving the best margaritas in our area! Perk: This year February 22 falls on a Tuesday – meaning that you can also take advantage of the Taco Tuesday offers!  

1. Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar

Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar is a popular Mexican restaurant with eight locations around South and Central Florida … And four of them are in The Palm Beaches! Check it out in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and West Palm Beach – the original and first location to be opened. The cocktail menu boasts more than 10 different margaritas ranging from the classic House Margarita to the spicy Jalapeño Margarita. Our favorite? The Strawberry Basil Margarita, made with Herradura Silver, fresh strawberries, fresh basil, fresh squeezed lime juice, and agave nectar – a refreshing cocktail that pairs well with South Florida’s heat! And if you don’t like the classic salty glass rim, order the sugar option! Margaritas aside, Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar also offers a wide variety of other cocktails, sangria pitchers, beers, and probably the best guacamole you can get anywhere! On Tuesdays you get unlimited tacos for $18.99, margaritas/shots for $6, margarita pitchers for $16, and Mexican draft beers for $4.  

2. Calaveras Cantina

The long margarita list includes anything from the classic cocktail to fruity alternatives to spicy options. One of the most popular ones is the signature margarita Salma’s Snake Dance, made with Habanero infused tequila, fresh pressed watermelon juice, and served in a “One Of A Kind” Salma Tiki Mug. The food is also superb. Taste the distinctive flavors of Mexico in a bowl of savory Guacamole made fresh in front of you or order the Duck Confit Empanadas for a unique culinary experience.  Every Monday, Calaveras Cantina offers margaritas for $5, and on Tuesdays all tacos are only $3!

9. El Camino

El Camino is more than a Mexican restaurant. With an extremely large collection of tequila and mezcal, El Camino is also a venue where guests are invited to explore the finer tastes of tequila, going beyond the stereotype of this spirit as a cheap party mixer. The menu includes very peculiar margaritas with some unusual combinations of ingredients, such as the Guava-Habanero, which includes Reposado tequila, habanero agave, fresh lime, and guava nectar; or the Spicy Avocado made with Blanco tequila, Combier, avocado, jalapeño, and fresh lime. On Mondays, classic margaritas are $3 all day. El Camino is located in Delray Beach, with a second venue coming soon to West Palm Beach.  

10. Bodega Taqueria y Tequila

Bodega is a tacos and tequila spot with six different locations in South Florida. The West Palm Beach location is conveniently located on Clematis Street and offers $13 margaritas or $45 margarita pitchers, nearly 20 different types of tequila, and over-the-top Mexican street food. Some of our favorite margaritas include the Pico Picante made with Teremana Blanco, Ilegal Joven, cucumber, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime; and La Diablita made with Don Julio Blanco, apricot, blackberry, ginger, and lime.
