Who has the best margarita in Seagrove or Grayton ? :?:
Me, at my condo :mrgreen:
No, me at any location. However, mine are not for sell. I hear that CoCo's in the strip mall on Hwy 98 has great Margaritas. I've had too many bad Margaritas at bars(in other places) to ever buy one again. Perhaps I am picky.
Margaritas were invented to cover the taste of the crappy tequila dumped on the American market. They keep most of the good stuff in Mexico and drink it straight.
For folks that like them - Coco's is popular. They serve them in fishbowls.
Funny you said that. We have a good friend from Monterrey & she always talks about "sipping tequila"; we thought she was crazy until Otter tried it! Now we can't stand the "American" stuff
Collins glass - salted rim
1 1/4 oz Cuervo 1800
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
1/4 oz Roses Lime
1/4 cup Fresh OJ
complete with Sweet and Sour Mix
garnish with lime wheel
Hmmm - whose house?
And, what time shall we come over? Looks like a good recipe. My mouth is watering, even though I am still dehydrated from last night's margarita run.
The mexican tequila called "tres generationes" three generations is the best for sipping! about 40 bucks a bottle though!
At CoCo's, you can buy a "glass" of the house tequila, straight, for $3.00. Now I bet you money that their house teq. makes for some fine sipping . If you need the mix to help wash it down, you can buy the "jumbo" margarita for $24. Did I mention it comes in a 60oz glass. The large is 38oz. They go down way to easily, so look out!
Dang! Does it come with fish and an airiator (sp?)
a fine margarita or two at coco's with an extra shot of tequila added is a fine night out for me! add chips, salsa and cheese dip and I'm a happy girl doggie. south walton has finally arrived.
Re: yes! margarita's!
Hey Tootsie! Where is Coco's. Sounds like my next stop a Grayton 8)
CoCo's is located in the strip mall on the north side of Hwy 98, approx 1/2 mile west of Hwy 393. You can even catch some a live Mexican band on Sat. nights.
RiverOtter, you can calll me "Tootsie," but don't call me late for margaritas.
Is Tootsie an artist whose last name ryhmes with "dine"? Just curious.
:wink: Looks like Coco's will be a plan this year. 8)
C lol: Coco's here I come !!!!!!
Luna del Mar's are better
As someone who has given Coco's a try many times to my continued dissapointment, I have to recommend the ritas at Luna del Mar in Seagrove. Their food is killer as well -- especially the shredded beef tacos. I like the atmosphere much better, too. One warning - the margaritas are quite strong. Oh, and they're closed until Valentine's Day for the off season.
By no means was I stating that CoCo's is known for the "quality" of their margaritas. It is the "quantity." In my opinion, the food is like most mexican food in the US, with the exception of Texas, and lower CA. Everywhere else is "mostly" crap. You go for the chips, salsa, cheese dip, Margaritas and friends, maybe the live Salsa band. Nothing else. The atmosphere at CoCo's is nothing special, but that is not as important as the people with whom you dine. Did I mention that CoCo's is open for business year-round? It is hard to get a margarita at a closed bar. Maybe, when Kurt gets the Block Party all set up, we could have a Best-Margarita contest. I will gladly be a judge, and it sounds like we already have a few bartenders willing to submit their entries. I make a mean Margarita myself, but I know what mine taste like, so I will glady sip on your recipes.
As for Luna del Mar, the Margarita are great. The food, well, I have eaten there several times, and it is hit or miss for me, although I know many people who think there food is great. I guess that since I know what authentic Mexican food tastel like, I cannot get excited about anything less.
