You and your friends decided to go out for margaritas and Mexican food. So far, the menu looks disappointing, but then the waitress asks if you’d be interested in a margarita pitcher for only $15. Thinking that some alcohol is the only thing that could save this lousy dinner, you go for it. Unfortunately, the “margarita” looks more like a pitcher of gas station slushy, and tastes just as bad.
A lot goes into making a delicious margarita, and none of the ingredients comes in a plastic tub with a flamenco dancer on the front. At Old Town Mexican Café, we have perfected the art of crafting margaritas. In fact, we serve the best margaritas in Key West, FL! But you don’t have to take our word for it. Below are a few of our in-house secrets for creating the perfect margaritas:
- We use the finest tequilas: A margarita is only as good as the tequila used to make it. Using cheap tequila results in a lousy-tasting margarita. Tequila is made of distilled blue agave plant. A good, flavorful tequila will be 100 percent agave and not contain any fillers. Only a tequila with 100 percent agave will give you the grassy, mildly peppery flavor with hints of citrus and floral flavors that a good margarita is known for. We use a variety of tequilas to create the different margaritas you’ll find on our menu, but all of the tequilas we use are quality brands with 100 percent agave.
- Fresh lime: No imitation lime juice or margarita powder mixes here! We only use fresh limes when crafting our margaritas. Using margarita mixes or even bottled lime juice is simply not how we do things. Just like the rest of our menu, only the freshest ingredients and flavors will do, which is why you’ll see us using fresh-squeezed lime juice in all our margarita recipes.
- The perfect combination: We don’t want to give away any trade secrets here, but the key to our famous margaritas is the combination of ingredients. We’ve perfected the assembly of our margarita to bring you the very best in quality, smoothness and flavor. When we say our margaritas are crafted to perfection, we mean it. Whether you’re considering our signature margarita, the Old Town Margarita, or one of our fruitier options like the Prickly Pear, you’ll find that our mixology skills are on point every time.
Crafting the perfect margarita requires using quality ingredients and a dedication to perfection. At Old Town Mexican Café, we bring both of these essentials to our drink menu. If you’re looking for a great place with a superior margarita, you’ll want to taste what we have to offer. There’s a reason we’re known for the most popular margaritas in Key West, FL, and it’s apparent in every margarita we make. Stop in and taste the difference for yourself. We guarantee you’ll be glad that you did, and you’ll never settle for an inferior margarita again. Come see us soon!
