Summer Margarita

    Description Perfect for the summertime, a Margarita is a popular cocktail typically made using tequila, lime juice, and cointreau, often served with a salted rim. Originating in Mexico, the Margarita gained widespread popularity in the United States by the 1950s, and has since become one of the most iconic cocktails globally. It is renowned for its refreshing, tangy flavor and can be enjoyed either shaken with ice, blended with ice, or straight up without ice. Often associated with warm weather and festive occasions, this refreshing drink will satisfy your thirst and add vibrancy to any celebration. In addition to the classic Margarita featured on the regular cocktail menu at our Waffles and Tacos location in Shipgarten, our specialty cocktail menu elevates it with the fun fruity twists strawberry and mango.
