Margarita fan? The bars and eateries of the city centre are too! Why not plan a day with some friends and go on a DIY margarita tasting tour? From interesting flavour combos to the well-loved classic, we've rounded up some of the best margaritas the city centre has to offer.
Mexico | 23 Britomart Place
Those who frequent Mexico will know of their epic Frida's margaritas, each one just as good as the last. With ten interesting combinations to choose from like blueberry lemonade, pineapple & coconut and watermelon & raspberry, it's hard to leave without giving a few of their creations a try.
Mexican Cafe | 67 Victoria Street East
One of Auckland's most loved Mexican joints since 1983, The Mexican Café is always buzzing with a lively atmosphere. Grab yourself a spot and order yourself one of their delicious margaritas, or get a whole jug to share with your group!
Wynyard Pavilion | North Wharf
If you like your margarita with a kick, Wynyard Pavilion's marg with jalapeno infused tequila, mezcal and a house-made coconut reduction is a must-try. The view will go down a treat too, perched beautifully adjacent to the water's edge, you wouldn't be able to get any closer without jumping right in!
Ghost Donkey | Commercial Bay
This tequila and mezcal bar will transport you straight to Mexico with their eclectic vibe and mouth-watering frozen margaritas. Light and refreshing, the cucumber and lime is a must-try, while the blueberry, cinnamon, lime and maple brings a delicious depth of flavour.
Taco Medic | 188 Quay Street
No matter the season, Taco Medics frozen margs are a treat you won't want to miss out on. Sit back in their courtyard overlooking the harbour and sip on the paloma grapfruit, lemon lime, or try the seasonal special!
Frida Cocina Mexicana & Tequila Bar | 89 Customs Street West
Set in authentic Mexican surrounds, Frida's refreshing margaritas will satisfy all your cravings. We especially love their outrageously big margarita sizes. Opt for the standard size glass, go for the grande or get the largest of them all and order the jumbo (this one is to be shared between 4)!
Coops Corner Pub | 204 Quay Street
Kind of like slushy for the but for the big kids, Coops famous frozen margs will taste just like dessert! If you prefer a classic, not to worry, they have those too!
