Type of Margarita Tasted: House margarita and Patron silver version on the rocks
Ingredients Listed on Menu: fresh lime juice and house tequila
Review: Everyone at our table thought the house margarita at Chuy’s was a little on the sweet side. It had a favorable taste but the flavor that makes a great margarita was missing … tequila. We tried the same margarita with Patron silver and were treated with a much tastier drink.
Type of Margarita Tasted: Don Julio Margarita on the rocks
Ingredients Listed on Menu: Don Julio Blanco tequila, Grand Marnier
Review: During our visit to Cyclone Anaya’s, we decided on the jumbo Don Julio margarita directly off of their selective drink menu. The oversized drink was delivered promptly and we dove right into our sampling. This well mixed drink had an excellent taste of fresh lime juice with the tequila pushing its way through. All of the ingredients were mixed to the perfect ratio, making this a well executed cocktail that is impressively smooth.
Type of Margarita Tasted:Pomegranate Margarita – Camarena Reposado Tequila, Cointreau, Pom Juice, Splash of Fresh Lime Sour
Review: This was our first trip to Del Frico’s Grille, located on Kirby Drive. We had heard the food is excellent so tasting out their food and drink offerings seemed like a perfect addition to our website. We have a delicious pomegranate margarita recipe on our website but figuring we have never done a side by side, we would’t immediately not know know how it compares to Del Friscos version.
The ingredients offered on the menu have the making of a delicious drink. Camarena, while on the lower cost wise of a blanco tequila made our 5 Best Cheap Tequila for Margarita list back in April. This is one of our go to blanco tequilas for margaritas due to flavor and cost. The other ingredients featured on their menu had the potential to compliment this margarita perfectly.
We only ordered one but had all four at our table sample the pomegranate creation. The consensus was that the drink had an extremely smooth taste and reminded each of being somewhere tropical sipping on a beach worthy cocktail. Each flavor was well represented and none dominated the easy drinking beverage which had the perfect balance of tequila and mild sweetness from the pomegranate.
