Ahh margaritas, the perfect drink for any day in Florida. Ever wondered where you can get the best margaritas in Tampa? Pretty much any restaurant you go to will have one on the menu. Because the drink is so universally loved and pretty versatile, they won’t be hard to come by. But where can you find the BEST? Well we’re here to help you.

The margarita is made up of 3 simple ingredients: tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Some places will opt in to add simple syrup to make their drink a little more sweeter. It’s also the drinkers choice if they want a salt or sugar rim on their drink. This is the kind of margarita that you can find basically anywhere. Our list includes the places that take their recipe above and beyond. Whether that means using an infused tequila, playing with different flavors, or serving it uniquely.

We went to Yelp.com to see if our favorites made their list. A few were on the top 10, so we added some of our own personal favorites that Yelp didn’t include. If you find yourself searching for “best margaritas near me,” look no further! Our list also features places on both sides of the bridge. From Seminole Heights and South Tampa, to Dunedin and Downtown St. Pete, this is our guide to the best margaritas.

One honorable mention that didn’t make our list is Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar. If you’re ever at International Plaza in Tampa, be sure to try their Jalapeño margarita made with Tanteo Infused Tequila. If you’re not a fan of spicy, try the Black Diamond instead.
