Best Margaritas In Baltimore

As we approach Cinco de Mayo, there's no better time to enjoy a refreshing margarita. The weather is heating up, and Charm City is the perfect place to find the best margaritas to cool things down. From Blue Agave, a bar featuring 130 different tequilas and Little Havana's picturesque outdoor seating paired with awesome happy hour specials, the options are limitless. No matter which venue patrons choose, each is sure to deliver a margarita that is "muy bien."
Blue Agave

Since its renovations and hiring new owners in 2012, Blue Agave has reclaimed its place as a top stop for Cinco De Mayo, or really any day of the week. Blue Agave has a selection of 130 different tequilas, all 100 percent blue agave that make for the perfect margarita. The Don Julio Bottle Club allows members to keep a prized bottle of tequila at the bar, so that each time they come in, their special tequila is waiting for them, and the only payment made for margaritas will be the added ingredients, which are of course all made in house. Whether it's the favored Spicy Guavarita (the perfect combination of spicy and sweet) or one of Blue Agave's several rotations (a Lavender Pomegranate Margarita used fresh lavender to infuse top quality tequila), these margaritas are sure to please.
