This Thursday, Feb. 22 is National Margarita Day and we’re shaken with excitement. We rounded up five local spots that have must-try margs, for the “holiday” and beyond.

  • Lionfish — Pendry San Diego’s restaurant offers three specialty margaritas made with Casamigos Tequila, but we’re really curious about the Sweet Treat made with sweetened condensed milk and a graham cracker rim.
  • The Duck Dive — We’ve got our eye on the Pacific Beach restaurant’s “Take Me to Mexico” margarita made with Olmeca Altos Plato Tequila, watermelon, and jalapeno.
  • Barrio Star — This Bankers Hill restaurant has many margaritas, but why not spice things up with a Roasted Jalapeno Blackberry marg?
  • Ponce’s — With two San Diego locations, this restaurant shines with its variety of tequilas and margaritas, including mocktail options.
  • Cafe Coyote — Why settle for one margarita? You can get a flight of five at this Old Town staple.
