I have to dispute this pick. Ever since Milagro Taco Bar closed, my wife and I have been searching for a margarita that is worth the $7 - $9 most places charge for something more than just Jose Cuervo and limeade. Tambien's margarita's are too small and watered down and have little taste. We have given Tambien three tries and each time we left disappointed. Even the $2 blue Kivarita's at Kiva are better.

When Jesse Morreale and Sean Yontz decided to duplicate the success they'd had at Mezcal with Tambien, they actually outdid themselves on the margaritas. Although the house recipe is ostensibly the same here as at Mezcal, Tambien puts a little more care — and a slightly larger tequila pour — into these deceptively simple drinks. There's no sweet-and-sour to make your teeth squeak, no tidy-bowl blue coloring, just good 30-30 tequila, a splash of Triple Sec and, most important, real fresh juice, squeezed that day (if not that hour). Tambien, hit us again.
