Best Margarita

If you’re wastin’ away or maybe just searchin’ for that lost shaker of salt, perhaps you could use a drink. Our readers say the following frozen concoctions “help them hang on.” Since poll voters began answering the Best Margarita question four years ago, the specialties at Cancun Mexican Grill (four Chippewa Valley locations) have risen to the top. They’re crafted with 1800 Reposado and house made lime juice. (Check out the specials on Mondays and Tuesdays, when margs are just 99 cents!) Joining them to unwind in the winners’ circle are the tasty beverages available at Azul Tequila (2503 London Road, Eau Claire) – where tequila is literally in the name! – and Manny’s Cocina (4207 Oakwood Hills Parkway, Eau Claire), where online reviews say the margaritas are “AMAZING!” – Tom Giffey
