Ten Best Bars for Cocktails in Broward County
10. Rocco's Tacos
The Broward outpost of the local chain, this trendy Mexican spot features a wide selection of -- you guessed it -- tequila. Fans of Mexico's most famous export can get their hands on more than 200 selections in cocktail -- or shot -- form. House margaritas like the Rocco Rita, with Patron Silver, Citronge Orange Liqueur, and Rocco's sour mix; the Pama Rita, with Cazadores Blanco, Pama (Pomegranate Liqueur), Citronge Orange Liqueur, and sour; and the spicy Tanteo Jalapeño Margarita, jalapeño-infused tequila, triple sec, sour, and agave nectar -- all are made with house-made sour mix and are available by the glass or pitcher -- just try not having a good time with the latter.

Tiki drinks were, like, the original cult cocktails; they still are to Tiki enthusiasts -- yes, that's a thing. So it should come as no surprise that the longest continually running Tiki bar in the country would whip up a damned fine island-inspired drink. The winner of multiple New Times Best Of awards in the drink department, this throwback restaurant serves a wide selection of mixed beverages in an array of potencies. From nonalcoholic like the Tahitian Paradise (a blend of strawberries, pineapple, o.j., and coconut) to the mild Hemingway-inspired daiquiri -- seems like an oxymoron, right? -- to medium rum juleps to strong Mai Tais, this place is sure to take you away. It's up to you to decide how far you want to go.
