Smoky Margarita at Tio Pepe

Smoky Margarita at Tio Pepe

Venture to the Village to try Tio Pepe’s signature Smoky Margarita made with 1800 Silver Tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar; topped with a float of subtly smoky Sombra mezcal. This margarita is a nice Spanish twist on the classic cocktail and the perfect pair to all paellas. And, just for the occasion, Tio Pepe will be extending their Happy Hour from 4 pm until close. You’ll be #FeelingPepe (and mezcal) on your walk home. 168 W. 4th St. A, 212-242-6480, www.tiopepenyc.com, @tiopepenyc

Spiciest Margarita at Pizza Beach

With 60 degree days in February, let’s pretend that the cold winter days are over and get into a summer mindset at Pizza Beach. In honor of our tequila-filled day, both – UES and LES – Pizza Beach locations will be offering a complimentary Spiciest Margarita with an order of a Margherita pizza. The Spiciest Margarita consists of jalapeño-infused tequila, fresh lime and canton ginger. And the Margherita pizza, you know what that includes: deliciousness. Hit the beach for margs x2. Both Upper East Side & Lower East Side locations, www.pizzabeachclub.com, @pizzabeach

Rosemary Margarita at Bodega Negra

B-O-G-O at Bodega Negra. The tequila warehouse will be offering ‘buy one, get one’ margaritas. We recommend the Rosemary Margarita – Herradura Blanco, rosemary-infused agave, pear puree and fresh lemon juice. And, there will be half-priced Bodega Margarita pitchers – valid one per customer. Coupon queens should be lining up for these solid ‘one day only’ deals. 355 W. 16th St, 212-229-2336, www.bodeganegranyc.com, @bodeganegranyc

Rio Verde Margarita at The Skylark

Sip through actual tortilla salt rim to taste the Milagro Reposado tequila, agave, Ancho Reyes Verde chili liquor and lime juice blend. Get a whiff of the spiked, grilled tomatillo and cilantro sprig garnish. Another job well done for mixo-master Johnny Swet. 200 W. 39th St, 212-257-4577, www.theskylarknyc.com, @theskylarknyc

Avocado Margarita at Añejo

If you haven’t noticed, there are more menu pages on tequila than there are on food. Hence, you are guaranteed a killer margarita at Añejo. Both Hell’s Kitchen and TriBeCa restaurants will be serving $8 Plata Margaritas ALL…DAY…LONG…along with their special Avocado Margarita. Need a crunch? Try the guacamole trio. You will thank me later. Both locations, www.anejonyc.com, @anejonyc

Cretan Margarita at Ousia

We welcomed Greek-centric Ousia to the West Side last month, and we’ll be back for mezcal and tequila on Wednesday. Conceptualized by Beverage Program Director Johnny Livanos, enjoy the Cretan Margarita – A mixture of mezcal, tequila, thyme liqueur and lime; shaken and strained in a chili salt-rimmed, on-the-rocks glass. Snag a seat at the wrap-around bar and indulge in grilled pita and hummus. 629 W. 57th St, 212-333-2000, www.ousianyc.com, @ousianyc
