Type of Margarita Tasted: Strawberry-habanero vanilla, Pineapple-habanero ginger, Jalepeno-hibiscus and Blueberry jalapeno cilantro
Review: El Big Bad is considered by many to be one of the top spots in Houston to grab a margarita. Their variety of infused tequilas and numerous margarita combinations makes this Downtown Houston location stand out.
Starting with a margarita straight off their menu, we chose the blueberry jalapeno cilantro margarita. The spice was more on the tame side and the blueberry added a hint of sweetness. The pineapple-habanero ginger was one of our favorites of the night. The margarita had a nice kick and melded perfect with pineapple. Continuing with our theme of spicy concoctions, we moved on to the Jalepeno-hibiscus. The drink had undertones of a sourness ending with the heat from the jalapeno. We can’t really say that strawberry and habanero vanilla worked particularly well together but part of the fun is assembling your own creation like a mad agave scientist.
If you are unsure of what flavors work best, we have always found the bartenders and waitstaff to be extremely helpful in assisting with your drink. You also can not go wrong with choosing one of the many margaritas they have put together on their cocktail menu. If you are in Houston, we recommend stopping by El Big Bad as it also made our list of best margaritas in Houston.
