2. El Camino's Chile-Guava Margarita

New to the whole tequila bar scene, El Camino has an impressive selection of Mexican-inspired drinks. From mezcal mules ($10) to pomegranate palomas ($10) to tequila old-fashioneds ($12) to an entire list of margaritas, this place can tempt any tequila-loving palate. While you pretty much can't go wrong, we pick favorites -- and we're certainly not ashamed of it! The chili-guava margarita combines smooth "rested" reposado tequila with sweet and fragrant guava and a spicy chili tincture for a drink that is refreshing and hot at the same time.

1. Canyon Southwest Cafe's Prickly Pear Margarita

Just because the color is bright enough and pink enough to get your average sorority girl doing backflips does not mean this margarita shouldn't be taken seriously. It may be pinker than Elle Woods' entire wardrobe, but this prickly pear margarita isn't nearly as sickeningly sweet as it looks. Complemented by acidic lime, the flavor of the cacti is refreshing, more like watermelon than anything else. It may look girly, but it's one of the most potent and mind-blowing margaritas you'll find in all of Broward and Palm Beach. The drink is, in fact, so good that it's won New Times' Best Margarita on at least three occasions. And it's still just as pleasurable as ever.
