Mucho Ultima Mexicana

903 Manhattan Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

Specializing in the "perfect margarita", blindly pick one of the dozen varieties on the menu and you won't be disappointed. Split a pitcher of the "Mucho" for a taste of the restaurant's secret mix made of fresh, blended ingredients that hide any trace of tequila.

Bar Centro at the Bazaar

465 S La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

Frozen or on the rocks, definitely order the "salty air margarita" for Bar Centro's unique twist on a classic. The salt is spun into a fluffy web which sits on the top of the drink.

El Cholo Restaurant

1121 S. Western Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90006

LA Lemonade. Now with three types of tequila.

El Coyote After Dark

7312 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036

El Coyote boasts the "Best Margarita in Los Angeles" and with good reason. Nothing fancy, but their "World Famous House Margarita" is a happy hour staple.

Marix Tex Mex Cafe

118 Entrada Dr, Santa Monica, CA 90402

Stop at the Playa on your way back from a beach day in Malibu for the Marix Mojito Grande, a margarita/mojito hybrid or their standard "Kick Ass Margarita."
