The Margs of Rockport-Fulton

For National Margarita Day, my dear friend Laura Jane and I decided we wanted to do our own Margarita Crawl around town sampling the finest margaritas our town has to offer. While we originally planned on hitting a lot more stops, time got away from us, tequila sat in, and we only made it to 5 places (we also didn’t start until 4:30 pm!)

Laura and I were both working Friday, so we had to wait til late afternoon to get our start. I did close 30 mins early....sorry guys, but it was for the sake of science and research purposes. I did serve margaritas throughout the day to our customers, and while they were certainly not gourmet (hello, from a box) they were quite enjoyable...

So if you plan on doing your own Rockport Margarita Crawl, start early. Start drinking at noon. Our town has so many wonderful restaurants & bars, and I’m sad we weren’t able to get them all in one evening! We’ll just have to try again with a margarita crawl part 2, and there will definitely be a part two.

Stop #1—the newbie in town La Tequila Jalisco.

Just recently opened Mexican restaurant with an assortment of classic & Tex Mex dishes. Laura and I opted for house margaritas on the rocks.

La Tequila's House Margaritas

They were quite tart, but extremely tasty. Out of all the margaritas we had, we felt La Tequila's was the strongest. We could definitely taste the tequila (I mean it IS the name of the restaurant) We ended up having two each since they were on special for National Margarita Day and meanwhile met up with our friend Kelly and my husband Jonathan.
