The jalapeño infused tequila is enough to have this spot’s margaritas earn a place on our list, but with fresh cocktails on tap, Gringo’s in JC is so much more than a place for great margs. And if you’re cravings tacos {because we are always craving tacos}, Gringo’s will not disappoint.

Mojitos are basically the sisters to margaritas, so they deserve a spot on this list for sure — especially when you can get a PITCHER full. Coco Havana has a variety of delicious sangrias and mojito pitchers.

If a restaurant is located on “Sips Ave,” it really can’t disappoint when it comes to drinks — and this place certainly serves up serious tacos too. It’s inexpensive, authentic, and a true gem in Jersey City — nothing fancy, but the food and prices are more than enough reasons to check it out.

Halifax for a Marg with a Twist + A Frozen Marg {225 River Street, Hoboken}

This Hoboken hot spot is serving up a Kingfisher Margarita in honor of National Margarita Day this year. The drink {priced at $16 — hefty, but worth it} is made with Patron barrel select Halifax Tequila, Cointreau, and lime + orange juice — simply and tasty.  They’ll also be selling a drink called Summer is on the Horizon — a delicious twist on a frozen margarita.

The only way to know how strong your drink really is is to bring the liquor + make it yourself. At Mezcal Kitchen, diners can bring their own tequila and buy margarita mix from the restaurant {yes, they sell it there} to craft their own margs at this BYOB spot.
