With spring in full swing, PAVLOVians and Texans alike are looking forward to one of our favorite holidays – Cinco de Mayo (who doesn’t love a day full of margaritas and Mexican cuisine?). After a long week at the office, you can be sure to find us sipping on our favorite margaritas at some of Fort Worth’s local hot spots! In honor of this special day in May, PAVLOV presents you with 5 Fort Worth margaritas you didn’t know you needed this Cinco de Mayo!
1. Meso Maya | Avocado Margarita
Executive Chef Nico Sanchez truly outdid himself with his infamous Avocado Margarita. The unique concoction of muddled avocado, freshly-squeezed pineapple and lime juices, triple sec, and Casa Noble Crystal tequila pairs perfectly with the fresh flavors of authentic Mexican cuisine at this Tanglewood favorite. www.mesomaya.com
2. The Original | El Jefe
Of course, Fort Worth’s oldest restaurant on the bricks of Camp Bowie had to make the cut! The Original’s El Jefe margarita is one that can’t be beat (trust us!). The El Jefe has the perfect mix of sweet and sour with its combination of Patron Silver, Cointreau, and fresh lime juice. Don’t believe us? Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed. www.originalmexcafe.com
3. Wild Salsa | Wild Rita
Wild Salsa’s own Wild Rita has PAVLOVians wanting more! Its unparalleled pairing of roasted pineapple and jalapeño-infused tequila, with hand pressed lime juice and agave nectar, is the perfect complement to their Mexico City-style food. This Downtown local hotspot is the perfect place to sit back, relax and sip on a spicy marg this Cinco de Mayo! www.wildsalsarestaurant.com
4. HG Sply Co. | Double Under
HG’s beet-infused Double Under margarita sounds weird, but tastes great! The superb blend of beet-infused Lunazul tequila, lime, Cointreau, and rosemary turbinado is a sweet and refreshing combo. The unique margarita pairs nicely with their vegan chips and queso (yes, we did say vegan queso). What makes this experience even better? You can down your marg with your dog in-tow on their pup-friendly patio just off University! www.hgsplyco.com
5. La Zona | Condesa Margarita
This new addition to Magnolia’s own restaurant row is a hit for PAVLOVians and Fort Worth locals alike! The old Europe-inspired restaurant serves pizza and cocktails in the property’s small-but-cozy Hotel Madrid, and their Condesa Margarita is sure to impress. The concoction of Hornitos Plata, Licor 43, lime, salt, and orange bitters will have PAVLOVians dancing (and singing) to Despacito this Cinco de Mayo! www.lazonafw.com
PAVLOV’s picks wouldn’t be complete without everyone’s local favorites! If you’re looking for more Texas-sized margaritas this Cinco de Mayo, be sure to check out: Joe T. Garcia’s, Chimy’s, Mi Cocina, Mesero, and Taco Diner.
