Five "Weird" Margaritas in Austin and Where to Find Them
Do you love margaritas? Check out these five places to find an interesting take on the classic drink...
Sometimes I get a thirst that only margaritas can quench. Be it frozen or on the rocks, there is nothing tastier than a sweet-with-a-twist-of-tangy margarita. Even though the classic margarita is great as it is, sometimes I like to think outside the box and try a new spin on the old classic. So, what are some of my favorite variations of the margarita and where can you get them? Here is my list of favorites:
5. Cactus Juice at Iron Cactus.

With it's beautiful blue-green color, Cactus Juice was the first thing to catch my eye when I walked into the bar. It's hard to miss, and the taste is one I won't forget, either. Made with a top-shelf Silver Tequila, Everclear, Midori Melon Liquer, and DeKuyper Blue Curacao, it is the perfect blend of sweet and sour.
4. Chiango Margarita at El Chile.

Yet another beautifully colored margarita, the Chiango Margarita is a deliciously frozen orange margarita sprinkled with El Chile's housemade chili salt to give this drink a dangerously addicting taste. If you like sweet and salty with a touch of heat, you MUST try this drink.
3. Cucumber Margarita at Vivo.

Served frozen and on the rocks, the Cucumber Margarita at Vivo is the epitome of refreshing! Presented beautifully with a hibiscus flower, and black sea salt garnish, this drink will quench your thirst and have you asking for more!
2. Purple Margarita at Baby A's.

This drink is as simple as it sounds, but be careful because it's packed with a punch! Served frozen, this margarita is purple in color and you are limited to two only. If you can meet the limit and walk a straight line afterwards, consider yourself gifted.
1. Avocado Margarita at Curra's.

The Avocado Margarita at Curra's tops my list because of all the margaritas I've ever tried; this one has to be the most interesting one I've ever tasted. I don't know what I expected when trying it, but I was pleasantly surprised. Leaving me speechless at first sip, I still don't have the words to describe it. It may not sound that appealing, but I promise, it is worth trying at least once!
