Type of Margarita Tasted: House margarita on the rocks
Ingredients Listed on Menu: none
Review: We wish we had ordered a premium tequila in this drink over the house tequila. The house margarita had a nice balanced taste but the cheaper tequila brought down the quality. There was a nice amount of lime poking through but the house tequila flavor dominated. Next time we are at Cazadores Mexican Restaurant we will be sure to enhance our experience with a finer tequila.
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Sauza Conmemorativo tequila, Presidente Brandy, Cointreau and lime juice
Review: According to a recent poll that confirmed the margarita is the most popular cocktail in the US, Chilli’s customers are 7% more likely to try a margarita (67%) than the U.S. average (60%). This was not too surprising as it seems that the Presidente margarita, their signature drink, is consistently mentioned on social media and copy-cat recipes are all over the internet.
The cocktail is served to your table in a bright blue shaker branded with Chili’s and the name of the drink. Your margarita glass is on the small side so it feels like you are endlessly pouring from the shaker as you consume the tiny portions. The only issue is that the shaker contains ice so if you drink too slowly, the contents will start to water down (this hasn’t been a problem for us though). It’s a smooth drink that benefits from the fresh ingredients. The sweetness is on the low side which is a plus. Our drink was mixed to the perfect ratio so we were able to taste the tequila which can be a problem at some chain restaurants.
Overall, we enjoyed this drink. It was properly mixed and had all of the flavors we look for in a margarita. If you didn’t know Chili’s was known for this margarita, you probably would think we are lying when we recommended that you try one at their restaurant.

Ingredients Listed on Menu: Sauza tequila, sweet and sour mix
Review: We were surprised to see a recent menu revision at a Houston area Chipolte, which now includes “Sauza Margarita” and “Patron Margarita” instead of just the generic description of “Margarita”. After ordering our burrito and the cocktail, the cashier turned around and poured the drink using a pre-made margarita mix and Sauza tequila. The texture and taste came across as mildly syrupy, a trait created by this particular brand of mix. The generous amount of tequila not only made this a stiff beverage but assisted in detracting from what could have been an overly thick drink.. Due to a lack of any measuring tools, it is likely your experience with this beverage may vary slightly.
