IF you're a true America, you'll celebrate National Margarita Day - there are no two ways about it. And of course, we're here to help! Here are three of the best margaritas in town (in our humble opinions).
The Saint. You can't miss the Saint-- it's the bright blue wedge off Olive. Hip and cozy, The Saint's arsenal of tequila is staggering, so rest assured you can always try something you've never had before. Whether you go with the El Santo (the Saint's classic margarita recipe) or Hermano (El Santo's brother with extra tequila bite), you'll want to be sure to nab some world class tacos while you're at it.

Ocho. It might take you a minute to find a seat in this teeny tiny tapas bar in Ballard, but trust us-- it's worth it. You absolutely can't go wrong with Ocho's Ten Dollar Margarita, which has El Tesoro Anejo, a tequila that is required to age at least one year by Mexican law. Throw in some tapas into the mix like empanadillas and gambas al ajillo (spicy garlic prawns) and you've got yourself a full on party.

La Carta de Oaxaca. La Carta has three signature margaritas, the Casa Marg, the Bartenders Marg and the Marg Teq-Caliente. Gun to our heads we couldn't tell you which we liked the best.
