Type of Margarita Tasted: Grand Gold Margarita
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Grand Marnier and Cuervo Gold
Review: The grand gold margarita at Los Tios
Mexican Restaurant is rich in flavor and notably strong. The
presentation and color of the drink makes you want to dive right into
the martini style glass. Cuervo gold is not known for being
smooth; a premium tequila would most likely balance out this drink well.
This version is above average for those that enjoy a hearty flavorful

Type of Margarita Tasted: Red Fish Rita, Frozen Gold Rita
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Red Fish Rita - Sauza Gold tequila, Grand Marnier, sweet & sour, splash of cranberry juice, Frozen Gold Rita - Sauza Gold tequila, Triple Sec, sweet & sour
Review: The frozen gold rita at the Downtown Aquarium was lacking in overall flavor. Any hint of a tequila taste was missing which was a huge disappointment. Overall the red fish rita was the superior margarita of the two tested. The splash of cranberry juice didn't push the sweetness over the top, producing a smooth margarita.

Type of Margarita Tasted: Gil's Top Shelf on the rocks
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Cavalino tequila and "original recipe"
Review: The secret to Gil's Top Shelf margarita is in the fresh ingredients, original recipe and premium tequila. This margarita has a refreshing lime taste and does not have the overly sweet mix taste some other restaurant margaritas exhibit. The owner has years of knowledge in creating margaritas and it shows with this drink.

Type of Margarita Tasted: Presidente Margarita
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Sauza Conmemorativo tequila, Presidente Brandy, Cointreau and lime juiceReview: The Presidente is Chili's signature margarita. This beverage is served to your table in a bright blue shaker you can take home for two dollars. The presentation is there and so is the taste. It's a smooth drink that benefits from the fresh ingredients. The sweetness is on the low side which is a plus.

Type of Margarita Tasted: Zia Margarita on the rocks, Frozen House Margarita and Blue Moon Margarita on the rocks
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Zia Margarita - Patron Silver tequila, Cointreau and Grand Marnier; Blue Moon Margarita - Don Eduardo tequila, Cointreau and Blue CuracaoReview: Santa Fe Flats produces the ultimate atmosphere to enjoy a margarita. At our visit on a Wednesday, we were treated to a guitarist that played various songs including Jimmy Buffet's "Margaritaville" while restaurant patrons sang along. The specials on house margaritas that day were unbeatable and so was the taste. We highly recommend the Zia Margarita. This margarita has a strong but balanced taste and is easy to drink. The weather was too cold this time but the well decorated patio area looks like a great place to sit next time we visit.
