Best Spots for Margaritas in Myrtle Beach

What is it about warm weather that makes us go margarita crazy? Is it the refreshingly tart citrus flavors? That salted rim harkening to the ocean and its sea air? The festive, celebratory feeling that drinking one inspires?


Like many other classic cocktails, margaritas are having a moment. Beverage directors and libation specialists (they’re not bartenders anymore, mind you) have gotten creative, using specialty tequilas, agave syrups and homemade infusions and add-ins to elevate the old standby to new levels of boutique craftiness. These concoctions are a fun way to experiment with new flavors, but sometimes the simple elements of lime, sugar, tequila and salt are all we need — and want — in a margarita.
