If you’re in the mood for the tangy twist of a margarita, you’ll find several mouthwatering options around Cincinnati. Our Springs Apartments communities are just a short drive from several popular Mexican restaurants known for their signature drinks. Don’t miss these four delicious local options:
Bakersfield is lauded as one of the best Mexican restaurants in America, popular for its large tortas and low prices. The bar features over 100 tequilas so you can dress up your margarita dozens of ways. The Bakersfield Margarita features el Jimador Blanco, triple sec, agave nectar, and fresh lemon or lime juice. This spicy margarita gets its kick from fresh jalapeno, while the seasonal margarita offers a distinctive twist appropriate for the time of year.
Pair your drink with one of the restaurant’s distinctive dishes like the hongos tacos with portobello, poblano, bell pepper, kale slaw, and cotija cheese, or the mole taco with oaxacan style braised chicken, queso fresco, and pickled red onion.
Inspired by Mexican street food, Mazunte’s menu offers a fresh taste inspired by authentic cuisine from Puebla, Chiapas, and Mexico City. A margarita on the rocks is your only option here for this classic drink, but it’s one of the best in the city and is in no way diminished by its simplicity. You can enjoy your margarita alongside an order of fresh tacos with beer battered or grilled fish, chicken, sangria-marinated skirt steak, shredded pork, or chorizo. Don’t forget to finish with house-made churros dipped in cinnamon sugar.
Nada’s bright, simplistic décor perfectly complements its vibrant menu. You can choose from half a dozen margarita options including prickly pear, pink grapefruit, chile-mango, fresh fruit, suprema, and the house specialty, “Nadarita,” which gets its distinctive taste from a squirt of honey. The dinner menu includes a selection of tacos, tamales, and enchiladas as well as more distinctive picks like grilled salmon, short ribs, or salad.
El Jinete is famous for its lime margaritas, available in three sizes, frozen or on the rocks. This delicious drink makes an excellent accompaniment to one of the restaurant’s hearty entrees, like the Enchilada Tapatias, with a selection of five different enchiladas, or the seafood burrito filled with crab, scallops, and shrimp. If you’re not after Mexican, you’ll find a few American picks here as well, like a beef or chicken burger, T-bone, or steak sandwich.
