Wicked Summer Fun Guide

It doesn’t need to be Cinco De Mayo for you to go out and get a fantastic margarita. It doesn’t need to be summer. A well made margarita is good anytime of year. It can warm you up and take you away to tropical places on a chilly day. It can cool you down on a hot day. They come spicy, savory, sweet, salty, and in a variety of fun glasses. A margarita is, without doubt, one of the most festive cocktails. If you wondering where to get a really good one, take a look at these 10 great places to grab a margarita in Boston.

I prefer mine on the rocks with a salt rim in a traditional margarita glass. But, I’m always up for an adventure. I have been to several of the places listed below. And I’m banking on the reviewers on Foursquare and Yelp to help out with this important research. Feel free to share where you go for the best margaritas in town.
