At Drink.Well House in Austin, Texas, the house margarita is all you'll ever need.

The Coconut and Passion Fruit Margarita
No one knows how better to do a margarita better than the folks at the Viceroy Zihuatanejo in Mexico. With coconut and passion fruit, this marg will make you believe it's National Margarita Day every day. Click here for the Coconut and Passion Fruit Margarita recipe.
Tuna Cooler Margarita
Don't worry, there's no real tuna in this margarita — it's Spanish for "prickly pear," so Don Julio says. But the prickly pear is what makes this Don Julio margarita so enticing. Says Don Love (who created the marg), "This drink is inspired by a soda commonly found in Southern California called the 'Cactus Cooler,' and is a twist on a traditional margarita with the addition of prickly pear purée to the recipe. This drink is easy to make yet unique and delicious, making it the perfect recipe for the novice at-home mixologist looking to celebrate the holiday." Click here for the Tuna Cooler Margarita recipe.
Yep, it's exactly what it sounds like: this jalapeño take on the margarita is served at Ranch 616 in Austin, Texas. Click here for the Jallarita recipe.
