It’s National Margarita Day, and the question is: what’s the best tequila for Margarita? We hear you, kids. And we’ll look at some of the top options and why they’re so awesome. Keep reading for our top picks and a few next-level cocktails.

We, of course, believe in the “personal best” at Prestige Decanters. You are in charge of what’s perfect. Price tag and reputation are off the table–if you like it, that’s what counts. We like giving you ideas, but at the end of the day, your preferences and tastes matter most. Party on, people.

Best Tequila for Margarita – from
$100 and Up to Under $50

Let’s go! Here’s our list. We hope you’re inspired to pick up a bottle and get crafty with what some would argue is the best cocktail on planet Earth. We’re not putting up a fight on that one. Especially today as we honor the Tequila Queen herself. We love ya, Margarita! Your salty rim makes the world go ‘round.

Pro tip:

Store-bought Margarita mixes are pretty basic. They’ll work in a pinch if you really need them. But for top-notch craft cocktails, do it right, y’all. Fresh juice, real liqueur, and fine tequila. Don’t be basic. Be magical.
