Best Margarita Minneapolis 2014 - Barrio Tequila Bar
925 Nicollet Mall
Minneapolis, MN 55402
Narrowing this winner down to the location wasn't difficult: The tequila specialists at Barrio not only know what they're doing, they have outlandish ways of doing it, from the absinthe-tinted cherry-lime Cobra Verde to the tequila-and-triple-sec uppercut of the citrus-blend Trinity. But if you want a margarita that'll play tug of war with your taste buds and leave your head reeling before the buzz even kicks in, Enter the Dragon has proven to be a perennial favorite. The combination of passion fruit, muddled pepper, and cava brings the concept of "bittersweet" to a new echelon, and while it's tempting to Hoover it up for a tremendous sock to the jaw, letting it linger with slow sips is the more satisfying course of action. Besides, with a name like that, there are few drinks that will sound so flat-out cool to order.
