The Best Margaritas in Austin

Looking for the best margaritas in Austin?

Time Out Austin has compiled a list of the best margaritas in Austin. Check it out and then plan to try them all!


The Roosevelt Room

This place knows how to do their cocktails well and the classic Tex-Mex beverage is no exception. The Roosevelt’s contribution to the list of best margaritas in Austin is simple: silver tequila, lime and Cointreau. It’s also one of the few cocktails that you can get for $7 during happy hour! So head down all day Monday and Tuesday or 5pm to 7pm Wednesday through Saturday and taste it for yourself.


Odd Duck

Odd Duck’s twist on the margarita is a bit, well, odd, but still definitely one of the best margaritas in Austin! Theirs is frozen and has Cimarron Reposado Tequila, damiana, Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur, fresh lime juice, and chili pepper agave nectar. We love a margarita with some kick to it!


Las Perlas

This mezcaleria (yes, those exist), has several versions of the beloved Margarita so Time Out declares a tie for their entry in the best margaritas in Austin list. The Oaxacan Margarita has Vida mezcal, fresh lime juice, Pierre Ferrand Dry Orange Curaçao and agave nectar. It’s then finished with spicy sal de chapulines (roasted cricket salt) and an orange slice. They also love the Spicy Daisy, which has Altos Blanco tequila, fresh cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice and agave nectar.


Desert Door Distillery

This entry on the best margaritas in Austin list is technically in Driftwood, but it’s worth the drive. The tequila is made from the sotol plant, which is wild-harvested from the desert. This makes it taste vegetal, herbaceous and a bit floral, which is perfect in the Desert Door Margarita. It features sotol, fresh lime juice, Ancho Reyes Verde Chile Polano Liqueur, and orange Liqueur.


Boiler Room Lounge


Located in the basement of the Seaholm District’s Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, their twist on a margarita is worth going underground for. The Tequila Rose features Tequila Arette, rosé, and freeze dried strawberry and lime on the rocks.
