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):
