by Carrie Dow on Feb 17, 2016 in Roundups

Monday, February 22, is National Margarita Day and there is nowhere better than Denver to enjoy this tasty tequila cocktail. With a variety of authentic Mexican establishments and fine tequila taquerias, there are plenty of places to enjoy in what should be a day-off-work holiday. Here are some of Drink Denver’s favorite margarita palaces.

Blue Bonnet
One of Denver’s most historic restaurants, The Bonnet loves Margaritas so much that there is an entire menu covering every kind possible. Here is just a small sample list: The Perfect Margarita, Blue Margarita, El Presidente, Frozen Swirl, Italian Margarita, the Mango Margarita, the Habanero Margarita, and the house specialty, the award-winning Phil’s House Margarita. With so many to choose from, you could drink margs all day. Or maybe that was their plan all along. (457 S Broadway; 303-778-0147)

Kachina Southwestern Grill
Enjoy happy hour all day on National Margarita Day up in Westminster. Get $6 house margaritas and half-price pitchers of the House Margarita, Coinhouse Margarita, Prickly Pixie, and Cointreau.

The house specialty is the De La Casa and is $9 for a 12-ounce, $12 for 28 ounces, $19 for 46 ounces, and $36 for a 64-ounce pitcher. That’s a heaping dose of margarita. Don Julio and Patron tequila margaritas start at $12 for 12 ounces and go up to $48 for a pitcher.
