Where to Find the Most Marvelous Margaritas on Tybee

There truly is a holiday for everything, and if you were unaware, Thursday, Feb. 22 just so happens to be National Margarita Day. Coming out of Mexico, the margarita is arguably the most popular tequila cocktail there is. Traditionally, the party-starting spirit is combined with triple sec and lime juice, shaken with ice and served in a glass with a salt rim. However, inventive spins on the margarita featuring all sorts of fruit juices, zesty spices and other fun ingredients are also well liked. In honor of the momentous occasion that is National Margarita Day, it seems apropos to clue you in to all of the amazing margaritas that await you on the island. If you want to celebrate this holiday the right way — with a drink in hand, of course — head to these local establishments for the best margaritas in town.

Chamacos Tacos & Surf

Chamacos is a local surfing haven serving up tasty tacos and top-notch tequilas, so quite naturally, they have some mouthwatering margaritas on the menu. For a classic take, order their margarita rock, served the OG way with lime and agave for sweetness. You can add a liqueur floater or a shot of tapatio to shake things up. If you like fruity flavors, try the watermelon marg with — you guessed it — watermelon juice and naranja liqueur. Feeling adventurous? Go for their infused margarita. The flavor profile changes weekly but the tastiness remains constant.

If you like things a lot cooler, go for their frozen peach margarita, which is perfectly refreshing on a sunny day.
