It seems I missed National Margarita Day last Saturday. This is one holiday I wouldn't mind celebrating. Where would a person find Grand Junction's best margarita?

National Margarita Day always falls on February 22. It just so happens that the date fell on a Saturday this year.

Looking back, it seems the last margarita I had was at the Thirsty Parrot in Colorado Springs about ten years ago. When it comes to "mixed" drinks, margaritas are about the only kind I enjoy.

It seems every restaurant or bar offers a wide variety of margarita drinks. They come in every color of the rainbow. However, according to Wikipedia, a "classic" margarita consists of:

  • tequila
  • orange liqueur
  • lime juice
  • often served with salt on the rim of the glass

Last year, one of the crew asked you where he could find the best margarita in town. Some of your suggestions included:

  • Tequila's Mexican Restaurant
  • Fiesta Guadalajara
  • Aztecas

That's a pretty short list. I think we can do a little better. It's time to let the moths out of my wallet and fork over a few bucks for a delicious margarita. Where does one begin? We're talking about a singular drink here, so let's make it count.

Here's a long list of Grand Junction area bars and restaurants. If I missed anybody, please write their name in, and it will be added to the list.
