Margaritas in Manchester

Nobody quite does fiestas like our Mexican amigos, with tequila, triple sec and lime reigning supreme. Whether you're pairing them with tacos and tostadas or just love a boozy sip any day of the week, we've scoured the city on a quest that could rival the road to El Dorado in order to find the best margaritas in Manchester. Fruity, firey or frozen, we've got them all right here.

Hidden away on Blackfriar's Street is this irresistible gem of a cocktail bar. 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.

El Capo

This unadulterated hit of South American and Mexican vibes is the perfect place to indulge in authentic yet inventive margaritas. Tommy On Top is a margarita lavished with grenadine, while El Capo's take on the Blue Agave margarita is rich in blue curacao.

Whipping up all sorts of agave-infused concoctions, Crazy Pedro's Pizza Parlour is doing far more than just slices. Opt between the Call Me Papi and Hibisco Burro or soak up one of their frozen margs: we're talking mango and pink peppercorn; kiwi and lemongrass; raspberry and balsamic and more.

Taking the top prize for best margarita at the Margarita Rumble,  El Taquero is undoubtedly one of our top choices for a hit of tequila. Get down to the Northern Quarter for classic combos, punchy drinks and the winning sip, Brisa de Aguacate, which pairs cucumber with avocado and chilli.
