The margarita at ELEMENT would be cool if it were only what it appears to be on first look: a Slurpee for grown-ups. But the liquid-nitrogen frozen cocktail works as more than a novelty when you take into consideration that the low temp of the scientific technique used to make it means no ice is required. Your frozen treat is made up entirely of tequila and Element’s special sour mix. The result is smooth, almost creamy, and dangerous. Dangerously delicious! Sorry, this drink inspires dorky catchphrases… less...

Sala
We've been spoiled for life by the margaritas at SALA. Potent and fresh with no aftertaste of syrup or commercial mix, these are drinks to savor rather than swig. The Longhorn variation is a masterwork of sweet and sour with a breezy backbeat of orange. If you like a bit of pucker to your 'rita, go formore...
We've been spoiled for life by the margaritas at SALA. Potent and fresh with no aftertaste of syrup or commercial mix, these are drinks to savor rather than swig. The Longhorn variation is a masterwork of sweet and sour with a breezy backbeat of orange. If you like a bit of pucker to your 'rita, go for the bracing Reales. Servers bring a martini shaker to the table for a presentation flourish. If it's been one of those weeks, come early on the weekends for the all-you-can-drink mini margarita tasting. And bring cab fare. "1186 N. Highland Ave. 404-872-7203. www.sala-atlanta.com" less...

Taqueria Del Sol (Featured)
Some say that frozen margaritas aren't "real" maragaritas. We could argue our case for hours - but then our delicious frozen margarita from SUNDOWN CAFE would be melted, and that would make us very sad.

The Traditional At Agave
Is there anything sexier than a shot of tequila, a squeeze of lime, a dash of sour and a drizzle of triple sec? Only when it's sipped on a cozy patio with a view of the city's skyline.

Is there anything sexier than a shot of tequila, a squeeze of lime, a dash of sour and a drizzle of triple sec? Only when it's sipped on a cozy patio with a view of the city's skyline. Served in a bowl-sized glass for $5.25, THE TRADITIONAL AT AGAVE - on the rocks, with salt and Sauza Gold (choose from 50 possible tequila upgrades) - is sweet but not syrupy, tart but not puckeringly so, and perfectly proportioned.

242 Boulevard 404-588-0006 http://www.agaverestaurant.com Neither too gritty nor too pretentious, newcomer Agave is comfy and chic, with a knack for making tequila, triple sec, lime and salt sing. Or at least "you'll" be singing, after downing a couple of ample margaritas off an even more ample margarita menu. The Cabbagetown enclave offers the traditional and Texas varieties, as well as the Margaritini (served "up, in a martini glass), the Agave Melon (with Midori, sour and lime) and eight other flavors, for $5-$9 a pop. As for you liquor snobs, you can swap Cuervo or Sauza for one of 30 other tequila choices, including a $17-per-shot Porfidio and a $35 Herradura. less...

El Azteca
At this Mexican cantina, you can tie on a trough of the cold stuff; large margaritas for one are served in bucket-sized glasses full of slushy sweetness. Or you could be a lady and order a pitcher for the lot. Choose strawberry or lime, frozen or on the rocks (go for the rocks if you don't mind the kick-you-in-the-assmore...
At this Mexican cantina, you can tie on a trough of the cold stuff; large margaritas for one are served in bucket-sized glasses full of slushy sweetness. Or you could be a lady and order a pitcher for the lot. Choose strawberry or lime, frozen or on the rocks (go for the rocks if you don't mind the kick-you-in-the-ass bite of tequila). No frills here — just cheap grub, a porch for chillin' and a good tequila buzz for all. less...

Nava (Permanently Closed)
This upscale Southwestern eatery puts a spin on the usual lime refresher with their Prickly Pear Margarita, a combo of cactus pear juice, Sauza tequila, triple sec and lemon-lime juice, served on the rocks in a salt-rimmed glass. If you're hankering for a pitcher of the slushy stuff, hit the cantina.more...
This upscale Southwestern eatery puts a spin on the usual lime refresher with their Prickly Pear Margarita, a combo of cactus pear juice, Sauza tequila, triple sec and lemon-lime juice, served on the rocks in a salt-rimmed glass. If you're hankering for a pitcher of the slushy stuff, hit the cantina. This place is all about class, from the furry, cow-printed bar stools to the crisp white chef hats bobbing around the exposed kitchen. But even "classy" Buck-heads get sloshed, and these sour sweeties will prick you in the ass after one too many. less...
