Best Margarita 2008

No Salt. Wait, Leave the Salt. No, Hold It.

Many, many restaurants in Santa Fe serve real margaritas—and by real we mean margaritas made with nothing more than fresh squeezed limes, orange liqueur and tequila (salt optional). But Maria’s menu of more than 100 margaritas makes it so, so, so hard to order a beer with your enchiladas. The restaurant’s distinctive touch is the use of lemons, not limes, for its margaritas, a substitution that most people don’t seem to care one whit about. The depth of the bar’s stock of real tequilas—meaning tequilas made in Mexico, from blue agave—and the staff’s knowledge of them encourages heavy sampling, but watch out! You’d better order a bunch of food first and then call a cab to take you home—you’re gonna fall in love with tequila here! If you take advantage of the samplers, and share them with a friend, you’ll find out more about what you like and still be sober enough to try a margarita made with your new favorite small-batch tequila.
