Tips For Ordering Margaritas From A Restaurant

If you have been thinking about going out for drinks with friends, you might have margaritas in mind. If you aren't used to ordering margaritas from a restaurant — or drinking them at all — then these pointers can help you have the best possible experience.

Visit When There Are Cheaper Prices

First of all, you should know that the cost of a margarita in a restaurant can vary. In some cases, they can be a bit expensive. However, many restaurants have "Happy Hour" deals or deals on weekends. If you can go out for drinks on one of these days, you can save a lot of money while still enjoying great drinks.

Try Different Flavors

Depending on the restaurant that you are visiting, there's a good chance that you can try margaritas in a few different flavors. Most restaurants that sell margaritas offer traditional margaritas. However, you might be able to order strawberry margaritas or some other flavor. If you try a few different kinds, then you might find a new favorite type of margarita that you will want to order every time you go out for drinks.

Choose the Right Liquor

Most margaritas have tequila in them. Some restaurants pre-mix their margaritas with their house brand of tequila. However, some allow you to choose the tequila that you want. Many restaurants offer a variety of tequila options, ranging from well or house tequilas that are on the more budget-friendly end of things, going all the way up to top-shelf, higher-end, and more expensive tequilas. If you have a favorite brand of tequila, you can ask for it, or you can try a few different types.

Consider a Liquor-Free Drink

You might be interested in trying a margarita, but you might not want to drink alcohol for some reason or another. Some restaurants sell margaritas that don't have alcohol, so don't be afraid to ask. If alcohol-free margaritas are not available, the bartender at the restaurant might be able to make you another delicious drink that doesn't have any alcohol in it.

Determine How You Want It Served

Lastly, you should know that you can often have a margarita served in a few different ways. You can decide if you want your drink on the rocks, which means it's served over ice, or you can ask to have it blended with ice. You can also decide if you want salt or sugar on the rim, or you can ask to have your drink without anything on the rim of the glass at all.
