National Margarita Day – Feb. 22 – is the perfect time to celebrate everyone’s favorite tequila drink by meeting friends and family at one of these Wichita restaurants.

Carlos O’Kelly’s

Some folks like the legendarily large Jumbo Margarita at Carlos O'Kelly's Mexican Café, while others swear by their hand shaken top shelf margaritas. If you’re looking for something skinny, they’ll even make a light version that’s sweetened with agave nectar. Head to one of their three locations in the Wichita area (South, West, North Rock) of this family-owned and Wichita-headquartered restaurant to decide for yourself.

Redrock Canyon Grill

Servers at Redrock Canyon Grill bring your Perfect Margarita in an ice cold shaker, pouring it into a frosted martini glass. There will be a second pour left of this tasty mix of Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado, Patrón Citrónge, Grand Marnier and their house made sweet and sour.

District Taqueria

The house margarita at District Taqueria is classic but they also offer up creative flavors like a mango-orange margarita or a grapefruit margarita. Whatever you decide, don’t forget to order chips and their uncommon queso at this Old Town favorite.

Deano’s Grill & Tapworks

The Perfect Margarita at Deano’s Grill & Tapworks is the perfect combination of Patron tequila, Cointreau and Grand Marnier with fresh squeezed lime juice. They serve it in a salt-rimmed martini glass with olives and lime.

Molino’s Mexican Cuisine

The drink menu at Molino's Mexican Cuisine is just as inventive as their unique fusion of Mexican and Latin American cuisines. Their twist on the margarita is serving it with a lemon pepper rim.
