LIVE LARGE DRINK MARGS
Dallas is the official home of the frozen margarita machine, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Margs are also this North Texas city’s favourite cocktail and the inspiration for the Margarita Mile app (Margaritamiledallas.com), a self-guided tour of the city’s best and chilliest ’ritas. Most outrageous is the liquid nitrogen margarita at Beto & Son. A server rolls a butcher block cart to the table topped with a giant stainless-steel bowl and fills it with fresh lime juice, agave nectar, orange liqueur and aged Mexican reposado tequila. Steam envelopes the table as he slowly adds a pitcher of frothing liquid nitrogen, whisking until it’s the texture of lime sorbet. The now frozen mixture is piled into a glass and sprinkled with passion fruit pearls. The result—pure pleasure, bursting with clean lime, smooth alcohol and a tangy hint of passion fruit.
