El Catrin

El Catrin

This popular spot for Mexican food does a handful of margaritas that will have you stumbling through the cobblestoned streets of the Distillery District. Best part: they offer pitchers, too.

Reposado

Reposado

It’s named after tequila, so it’s a given that this Ossington bar would shake up great a great margarita, using some incredible liquor, no less.


Grand Electric Taqueria

Grand Electric Taqueria

Head to Parkdale or across from Trinity Bellwoods for tequila and tacos. Margz here are made with house-made agua fresca, and they’re half-price during Happy Hour on weekends.

There are only two staple cocktails offered at La Carnitas (there are four scattered around the city). One of them is their Carnita Margarita, made with 20 oz Cazadores blanco, lime, and agave. Pitchers are available.


Playa Cabana Hacienda

Jimador Blanco or Tromba: whatever you prefer, you can get either tequila in three different margaritas offered at this popular Annex date spot.


El Rey Mezcal Bar

El Rey Mezcal Bar

This warm and cozy spot in Kensington Market is a great spot for Mezcal shots, but for something less intense, the margarita with tequila, cointreau, lime, and salt will do.

Barrio

Leslieville’s go-to for guac and a patio has seven variations of margaritas, including a super fun passion fruit marg with peach schnapps, passion fruit juice and lemon.


Campechano

Campechano

This narrow King West taco spot gets busy, meaning you might have to wait in line for bistec tacos and their margarita made with Cazadores reposado tequila and triple sec.

Hotmess Tex Mex

Hotmess Tex Mex

This kitschy, tongue-in-cheek ode to Tex Mex cuisine in Little Italy actually makes a mean marg. Their version is simple, with a classic salt rim and lime wheel included.
