Tequila, fresh lime juice, and orange liqueur. It only takes three ingredients to create an icon. Sure, innovative bartenders have been adding strawberries, jalapeños and prickly pear syrup to margaritas for decades, but when prepared correctly, it’s hard to improve on a classic. That being said, Las Vegas is a city that likes to get creative — it’s where people go to enjoy an open bar on the world’s tallest observation wheel and ride a zip-line beneath a neon canopy.

For both traditional and unique takes on the margarita, here’s where to head.

Las Vegas, NV 89101
(702) 463-9900
Visit Website

Downtown’s best cocktails aren’t exclusively found on Fremont Street. Case in point: Sixth Street, where margarita lovers will fall in love with La Comida’s drink menu. Options include guava, tamarind, spicy cucumber, jalapeño passion fruit, and more. Lady Gaga once graced this downtown watering hole with her presence, which is proof enough that the Mexican spot deserves attention.

Hussong’s Cantina at Boca Park and Mandalay Place is an extension of the original Hussong’s in Ensenada, which lays claim to creating the original margarita recipe. With that in mind, it makes sense to head to the Las Vegas outpost of the restaurant to see what all the fuss is about. Margaritas here are available by the glass, the pitcher or the tower. Flavors include the classic recipe along with special varieties, such as The Romance, a two-person serving made with strawberry puree and banana liqueur.

Nacho Daddy may be known for its scorpion shot — yes, it’s a shot of tequila that features an actual scorpion and no, there’s no logical way to consume it — but the local chain also offers some pretty creative margarita choices. From the surprisingly tasty Cinnamon Fire-Rita, which is made with Fireball whiskey and silver tequila, to the Mexican Candy, which is made with mango schnapps and jalapeños, Nacho Daddy is definitely for diners who are open to unique cocktail options.
