Celebrate with 14 Mouth-Watering Margaritas in New Mexico

(Santa Fe, N.M.) – In celebration of Thursday’s National Margarita Day, the New Mexico Tourism Department has released a list of some of the top margaritas across the state.

“There is no better place to celebrate and enjoy this quintessential Southwestern cocktail than New Mexico,” Tourism Department Cabinet Secretary Rebecca Latham said. “These margarita mixes are unique and bursting with New Mexico True culinary creativity and ingredients.”
A Mandala Research report states that 51 percent of all leisure travelers seek out unique or memorable eating and drinking experiences while on vacation. This rings true in New Mexico, where visitors are consistently more interested in cuisine and culinary experiences when compared to the U.S. average.
Included on the list of “14 Mouth-Watering Margaritas” in New Mexico:

  • Turquoise Margarita at Double Eagle Restaurant in Mesilla 
  • Chile Mango Margarita at the historic Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas 
  • Sweetheart Margarita at La Ventana Steakhouse in Grants 
  • Salty Señorita at the Coyote Café in Santa Fe 
  • Jalapeño Margarita at El Pinto in Albuquerque  

Discover the full list of “14 Mouth-Watering Margaritas” and video of Coyote Café’s Norteño Margarita at NewMexico.org. Please enjoy Margarita Day responsibly – there is no excuse for getting behind the wheel after drinking. Call a cab, a friend or a ridesharing service.

About New Mexico True: The New Mexico Tourism Department created the New Mexico True campaign in response to common misconceptions that New Mexico is a dry, arid, barren desert state with nothing to do. Built upon the idea that a trip to New Mexico is an “adventure that feeds the soul,” the campaign provides a platform for unified brand messaging for more than 50 communities and businesses around the state. In 2015, New Mexico True received two prestigious awards for “Best Digital Campaign” in the country. Since the launch of the campaign in 2012, the economic impact of tourism in New Mexico has grown for seven consecutive years.
