To help you celebrate Cinco do Mayo, we've rounded up a list of our favorite spots for the best damn margaritas in Connecticut! Because, let's be honest, we and we ALL deserve a refreshing Margarita (or 3) and a belly full of delicious eats after the year we've had! These are our top pics for Margs in #The203 ... and we can't wait to hear what you think. ** If you have another spot that you think we need to try out, let us know in the comments below :)
The Back End, New Canaan:
Located directly behind Uncorked, this spot is slightly off the beaten track-- making it the best hidden gem on Elm street. Hip atmosphere, vibrant ambiance, great music, epic outdoor patio and margs that are even more delicious than they look (shocking, we know!!). If you’re looking for a fun spot for outdoor drinks with your besties, The Back End is not to be missed.
Tequila Revolution, Fairfield: Hands down our fave marg in Fairfield. Delicious food, great margaritas and a fun, trendy vibe… need we say more?

Sayulita, Glastonbury: This spot comes highly recommended by one of our brand reps, Gina Salvatore--- and let’s just say we’re gonna trust her on this one! According to Gina, the food is unreal but the margs are even better. Which one should you order? The specialty marg. Every time. They switch it up constantly and it never disappoints!

Coyote Blue, Middletown: These guys make one of the baddest margaritas that we’ve ever had. Served in 16 oz mason jars, these cocktails have quite the kick. They are so lethal in fact, that you are limited to just two per visit! Don’t worry, they offer half-sized versions as well. Highly recommend this fun, vibrant spot.

Boxcar Cantina , Greenwich: Brain freeze, anyone? Head to Boxcar Cantina for the best-frozen margs around (we highly suggest the Super Chief). They even offer flights of frozen margs… and who doesn't love a good sampler!? We also love that they are committed to using the freshest, local ingredients in all of their dishes.
