Say ‘hola’ to the best margaritas in London
Del 74 is a party-ready bar where tequila flows freely. Classic margaritas cost a fiver during happy hour, or opt for cucumber or watermelon flavours at any time of day.
This upmarket taqueria found under a London Bridge railway arch is well into margaritas. Our tip? Grab an ace frozen version, made all the sweeter with orange blossom honey.
Seek out this tequila den near the bright lights of Soho for a wild night out. There are six takes on the Mexican cocktail to pick from – but you can’t beat it on the rocks with a salty rim.
A buzzy Battersea bar with a focus on tacos, mezcal and, of course, tequila. They make a shit-hot Tommy’s Margarita, which will have you dancing along to live tunes for sure.
While they bang out solid classic margaritas at this London Bridge bar, we love it when they get creative. The chargrilled pineapple and sage margarita is a smoky blend with real cojones.
There are lots of exotic concoctions on the menu at Santo Remedio, but you won’t be disappointed with a beautifully balanced margarita de la casa. Forget a salt rim; they use tajín, a chilli-spiked Mexican spice mix. Arriba!
Venue says A vibrant Mexican restaurant with an upstairs tequila and mezcal bar, serving authentic regional Mexican cuisine and cocktails.
Fancy a marg with a Great British twist? Sample the English Garden Margarita (£14) at Oxo Tower’s Bar. It contains apricot liqueur, Earl Grey syrup and has sugar snap peas for a garnish – don’t worry, there’s a healthy slug of blanco tequila in there, too.
They love a party at this rockin’ Clapton bar, and one thing that helps get it started is the grapefruit margarita. It’s a twist on a classic that really works: a pink drink that’s muscular and stonkingly sour.
At LCC’s Oxford Circus branch, a tommy’s margarita is the specialty. Their version is called the Heisenberg and – you guessed it – it’s served as a bright blue drink, with a blue salt on the side. Revolutionary.
