Is there anything better than an icy, salty and bitter margarita after a long day’s work?
Margaritas are the kind of drink you crave with an unquenchable thirst until you’re seven deep and questioning your entire life.
The combination of tequila, triple sec (usually), lime/lemon and salt/sugar is legendary – regular or frozen, you do you.
Margs over carbs.
Here are our 10 fave places in Dublin to down one.
1. 777 – South Great George’s Street
The first place we think of when it comes to Mexican drinks of the gods.
Choose from their classic house marg or the 777 margarita especial, the dragon negra, the lobo verde, the marg del fumo or the mi cobra mas sexy.
2. Oxaca – Dundrum Town Centre
If there’s one thing these guys know how to do, it’s one heck of a margarita.
Well worth trekking out to Dundrum for.
If you ask real nicely they’ll even serve it in a massive glass skull.
3. Balfes @ The Wesbury
For €10.50 you can enjoy a serious marg in one of the slickest spots in town away from all the hustle ‘n’ bustle.
Check out their full cocktail menu here.
4. Dillinger’s – Ranelagh
We are creatures of habit when it comes to Margarita Mondays in Dillinger’s.
How can we say no to two strong, salty and shaken margaritas for €12?!
The best way to end a miserable Monday and start the week as you mean to go on.
5. Drop Dead Twice – The Tivoli Backstage, Francis Street
BYOT – bring your own tequila to Dublin’s coolest and first ever bring your own liquor bar where they will make it into whatever margarita your heart desires.
Two hours is €25 and three is €30. Book in here.
6. Acapulco – South Great George’s Street
We’d normally opt for a plain marg, but Acapulco’s strawberry marg is TO DIE FOR.
At €8.95 a piece, they’re slight cheaper than what you’d get across the road in 777 but just as tasty.
Alternatively go all out and get a margarita pitcher for €32.50.
7. Taco Taco – Dame Court
For €12 you can chug tequila, Cointreau and lime juice while munchin’ some our favourite Mexican food in Dublin.
Their margaritas are strong af – you’ve been warned.
8. Xico – Lower Baggot Street
It’s all about the frozen margs in Xico.
And the prickly pear flavour is hands down our favourite.
The best part? They’re only €8, and only €4 on half-price Mondays. Hurrah.
