Margaritas in Manchester

Arriba! Nobody quite does fiestas like our Mexican amigos, who are historically believed to be the founding fathers of the Margarita! Orange liqueur, tequila and lime are the bare bones of this feisty number, but given the trends in cocktail making, it was bound to be developed into something with a little more attitude! We've scoured Manchester on a quest that could rival the road to El Dorado in order to find the best Margaritas in town; fruity, firey or frozen, we've got them all right here!

You're guaranteed to get a truly authentic Spanish experience right here. Although they specialise in wine, no-one makes a mean margarita quite like our amigos in this warm, cozy and spectacular restaurant and bar. Tangy and sharp, this classic cocktail is the epitome of 'less is more'. The best tequila and Cointreau drench the crushed ice in your glass, finished off with a traditional salt rim.

Double Your Bar Tab

Hidden away on Blackfriar's street is a truly irresistible gem of a cocktail bar. Brilliant pioneers of mixology, these guys knock up cool and creative cocktails whilst anything off the menu can be whizzed together in a flash. Opt for a classic margarita, or take a walk on the wild side and order a Rum Swizzle - the lime and sugar combination are the same, but tequila is replaced with Havanna Club Especial and triple sec is shoved aside to make way for Velvet Falernum: a citrus and sweet spiced Caribbean syrup.

This unadulterated hit of South American and Mexican vibes is the perfect place to indulge in authentic yet inventive margaritas. At £7.50 a pop these cocktails are just over average price in Manchester. Tommy On Top is a margarita lavished with grenadine cream whist their take on the Blue Agave margarita in rich in Blue Curacao and as deep as the sea (almost).

Formally Missoula, this chain have reinvented themselves again in the form of Ark. Serving up the same indulgent menu, you can have your margarita in a stocky Tommy Boy jam jar or the classic girly glass. We can't resist the fruity flavours of the Peach and Passion Fruit margarita, made with peach schnaps and fruit puree, or the Chambord drenched Sparkling Black Raspberry margarita.
