Margaritas in Jacksonville

📷 Taverna

Taverna is probably one of the few places that serve margaritas in pints. Yes, you heard that right, a pint-sized margarita that serves four! Their handcrafted cocktail is made using a blend of Camarena Blanco Tequila, lime juice, agave syrup, and Mandarin orange. 

We personally LOVE the addition of the orange, as it adds a hint of citrus to the taste and, of course, pays homage to Florida.

No need to worry if spicy isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other fruity options to satisfy your thirst! With ingredients ranging from watermelon to hibiscus flower, blueberries, and more, we guarantee 904 Tacos has some of the best margaritas in Jacksonville.

📷 Cantina Louie

Cantina Louie is known for its selection of cocktails. Seriously, just that picture alone tells you that these people know what they’re doing when it comes to making drinks. With numerous margarita options, there’s something for everyone on the menu.

If you’re looking for an interesting flavor, we suggest the Agave Ginger Rita. Normally we wouldn’t recommend mixing liquor and beer but in this case, it’s totally worth it. This marg uses ginger beer to give a hint of sweetness while balancing it with the sour from a lime.

Cantina Louie is always mixing up uniquely mixed margs, try yours ASAP.
