WINNER: La Gloria

100 E. Grayson St. • (210) 267-9040

Frozen or on the rocks? It's a question that has plagued indiscriminate margarita enthusiasts for decades. If you find yourself at La Gloria for happy hour craving one of the fresh Mexican cocktails, the correct answer is both. The popular restaurant at the Pearl might be best known for its south-of-the-border street eats, but, seriously, what are you supposed to wash all of chef Johnny Hernandez's tacos al pastor down with anyway? La Gloria's menu features three classic margaritas, all of which contain El Jimador Reposado tequila, Patrón Citrónge and lime juice: Margarita de la Casa (includes lime zest), Margarita La Gloria (includes blue Curaçao) and the Prickly Pear Margarita (includes prickly pear and lime zest). On a recent trip to the restaurant around noon, there were quite a few blue concoctions with salty rims getting tipped back by guests. We're not jealous or anything, but don't you people have jobs!?
