Whether you're getting your weekend started, celebrating Margarita Day or just fancy a taste of that Mexican life in the middle of the week - these are the Margs we're all about when it comes to home drinking.
A Margarita you can fit in your back pocket? We're down. Rather than bottling their cocktails, the team from NIO have packaged up their premium crafted serves in uniquely designed sleeves slim enough to keep on ya until the mood strikes. Then it's a case of rip off the corner, pour over ice and sip. Their slim-packed Tommy's is sharp, citrusy and bad-ass - a taste of Mexico in your pocket.
Having a rule-of-6 Cinco De Mayo celebration with your mates? Wanna stock up? This Quarantini bumper box is the way to do it. Choose two bottled cocktails created on-site at The Sun Tavern by the wicked bar team, enough for 8 serves - all for £28. Sure you can go for Irish Old Fashioned, Negroni, Sazerac... but why would you when Margs are on the cards??
Each bottled cocktail contains 4 cocktail serves. Get your box of treats here.
When BarChick wants to let her hair down, this is the Soho haunt she heads to. While letting loose in lockdown hits a bit differently now, you can still score the good stuff The Pink Chihuahua is known for, cos this basement bar is bottling up their Margs for when you wanna go loco in your casa - you just gotta get them delivered. Our choice? Well, nothing says "dance on your kitchen table" quite like a Tommy's. And you won't have to negotiate El Camion's ladder-like staircase when it's time to call it a night. May as well make it two bottles.
Q: What do you need to experience the 5th best bar in the world during a global pandemic? A: a freezer full of ice, your favourite rocks glass and a few bottles of their epic RTD cocktails. The formidable pair behind Shoreditch's Tayēr + Elementary don't do things by halves. That's why when it comes to creating a bottled Margarita, they've gone all out, hitting us with an agave double whammy of tequila and mezcal. The result is a blend of ripe creamy agave, with an earthy smokiness cut with ripe citrus. Oh mama.
The Pink Chihuahua's bottled Margarita's come in 750ml bottles (approx 6 cocktails) for £40 each. You can get them here.
This sh*t-hot East London drinking hole is parked firmly on the World's 50 best list, but their cocktails are rocking a bit more mobility. Pretty sweet news for anyone sat at home missing the way the Vennng brothers make magic with booze. They've nailed the classics and bottled them up for delivery, with a touch of Three Sheets class. For their margarita, they've kept it traditional (ish), and bad-ass. Time to make some space in your fridge, amigos, cos with this Marg you're never more than a bottlecap twist away from Kingsland Road's answer to Mexico.
Each 500ml bottle is priced at £29. Available to order through Top Cuvee

Aperitivo Hour, meet Hammock Time. This chill can of Margarita Spritz from the Miami Cocktail Co brings a kick-ass canned hybrid of summer vibes, subbing out the traditional tequila for agave wine AKA fortified wine made from fermented blue agave blended with Blanco tequila. They've pimped it with sweet and floral notes of elderflower and ginger, and balanced it all with a lush spray of lime juice. Perfect for sipping on a sun-dappled Italian terrace, under a Mexican beach-side cabana or at your local park. Whatever works for you.
The batched cocktail pros Black Lines have added a touch of chilli to their Tommy's Margarita and it's bringing more heat than an episode of Bridgerton. Hot damn. Just get that bottle straight in the fridge and when you can’t wait any longer, pop the cap, pour over plenty of ice in a rocks glass and garnish with a chilli top. You're gonna want some alone time with this bottle. Trust us.
This 500ml bottle contains 5 serves, priced at £24. They'll hook you up with a bottle here.

Few London cocktails have legend status, but we can pretty confidently say Hacha's Mirror Margarita is 100% legendary. In fact, it's now a brand in its own right. If you haven't tried "the best cocktail in the UK" yet, now's the time to change that, and while you're at it, you need to give their Mezcal Marg a ride, too. This smokey twist on the award-winning OG is made with The Lost Explorer Espadín Mezcal, a sweet, herbaceous spirit with notes of apple, cherries and wood smoke.
Each 500ml bottle (4 large serves) is priced at £36. Get your bottle from the Mirror Margarita webshop.
When something promises to be 'so smooth and fresh you’ll feel you’re lying on the warm sand surrounded by palm trees with one sip' then we sit up and damn well listen. This bottled riff on a Tommy's is crisp and refreshing, combining the golden flavours of aged tequila with tangy lime, sweet agave, and their secret bitters with a hint of smokiness. Move over Tommy, this is Tom's Margarita now.
Sherbert lime notes, umami seaweed... this screams mouth-watering flavour bomb for the tastebuds, and we're into it. Those badasses at World of Zing sure know how to mix a creative cocktail.
