Good margaritas in New Orleans

Happy Cinco de Mayo! We crave margaritas and chips and salsa on May 5. How about you? Lucky for us New Orleans has plenty of watering holes. Check out these recommendations from various New Orleans sources:

GoNOLA recommends eight specific margaritas around town. Of course, Felipe’s house margarita is on the list. The options also include classic margaritas and craft cocktails inspired by margaritas.

One of the recommendations is a margarita from Rum House. This is what the house margarita looks like (on the right):

Yelp NOLA has ranked its top margaritas. The top five include ones we’ve tried and would drink again – Sarita’s Grill on Freret, Juan’s Flying Burrito and El Gato Negro.

We like to get margaritas by the pitcher at Juan's Flying Burrito. And don't tell anybody, but there's a cool patio at the back of the Lower Garden District restaurant. (photo by Carlie Kollath Wells, New in NOLA)

NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune highlights three Cinco de Mayo parties tonight. We’re leaning toward Casa Borrega. The restaurant on OC Haley is roasting a whole pig AND it has tasty cocktails.
