1. MAR­GARITA LA CON­DESA AT LA CON­DESA

From be­hind one of the most beau­ti­ful bars in Austin, La Con­desa mixes up some of the finest drinks this side of the bor­der. We’re par­tial to Mar­garita La Con­desa, com­bin­ing Ci­mar­ron Blanco Tequila, Dam­ina Liqueur, and pineap­ple and lime juices. 400A W. Sec­ond St., 512-4990300; la­con­desa.com

2. FROZEN AV­O­CADO MAR­GARITA AT FRESA’S CHICKEN AL CAR­BON

The South First out­post of Fresa’s serves up a scrump­tious ver­sion of this Austin fa­vorite. Creamy and rich, Fresa’s av­o­cado nieve is best en­joyed on the ex­pan­sive pa­tio. 1703 S. First St., 512-992-2946; fre­sas chicken.com/south-first

3. EL DIABLO AT STAY GOLD

If spicy mar­gar­i­tas are your go-to, El Diablo is your sav­ior. Ha­baneroin­fused Mi­la­gro tequila gives this cock­tail a real kick, while mud­dled black­ber­ries add bal­ance. 1910 E. Ce­sar Chavez St.; stay­goldaustin.com

4. 310 MAR­GARITA AT MANUEL’S

A must for mar­garita purists, the 310 Mar­garita has been the most pop­u­lar drink served at the Congress Av­enue lo­cale since 1984, and the recipe (Don Julio Sil­ver, Bauchant, house-made sour mix, and fresh lime juice) has never changed. 310 Congress Ave., 512-472-7555; 10201 Jol­lyville Road, 512-3451042; manuels.com

5. SEA­SONAL MAR­GARITA AT LICHA’S CANTINA

Housed in an in­ti­mate bun­ga­low on the East Side, Licha’s serves up tra­di­tional mar­gar­i­tas to com­ple­ment their In­te­rior Mex­i­can fare. The ever-ro­tat­ing sea­sonal op­tion (think mud­dled jalapeño and wa­ter­melon) is a can’t-miss. 1306 E. Sixth St., 512-480-5960; lichas­cant­ina.com
