Best Margarita St. Louis 2013 - Diablitos Cantina
There's no shortage of decent margaritas around town, but how many of them use housemade tequila infusions? The "Margarita de Casa" is made with Aqui Vamos tequila, lime juice, orange juice, housemade simple syrup and triple sec — go ahead and get a pitcher. The original marg can also be made with any of Diablitos' three infused tequilas: coffee, tea and cinnamon; mango, pineapple and orange; or cucumber, jalapeño and hibiscus. The "Tamarindo" margarita adds a twist of tamarind to the house recipe; the "Smoke & Mirrors" is made with mezcal, lime juice, orange juice, housemade simple syrup and triple sec. Happy hour is from 3 to 7 p.m. daily, with $4 house margaritas and pitchers for only $11 (they're usually twice that). Diablitos also often has seasonal specials like local peach or electric blue margs. Get an order of queso blanco to keep you from going overboard, but we won't tell if you reach the four-tequila-floor point.
