A margarita is the one cocktail that's delicious when it's made right but utterly heinous when it's crafted poorly. When it's expertly made, the drink is a perfect blend of sweetness, tartness, booze, and salt. Sadly, most places use corn-syrup-laden mixes that burn your throat and taste like sugar and floor polish. If you want a real, bespoke margarita, head to Taquiza. There, the bartenders mix fresh margaritas using only natural ingredients. They will also make you whatever flavor combination you desire with real fruit and herbs. Want a strawberry cilantro margarita? Your barkeeper will muddle the fresh strawberries — no purée here! Go wild and get creative with fresh coconut water, tamarind, and pineapples. A margarita starts at around $10, but take advantage of happy hour, 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, when margaritas cost only $5 each or $20 for a pitcher (regularly $40). Pair your margarita with some of Steve Santana's tacos, and you've got a flavor fiesta. Hours are noon to 11 p.m. daily.
