    Houston's makes their margarita mix from scratch every day. Does that count?

      the problem with most of the mixes, freshly made or not, is that they are heavily sugared. a classic margarita should not, imho, contain sugar from the 'mix,' it should get all it's sweetness from the triple sec or the cointreau.

      nonetheless, i will call houstons today to see if they can make me one without the added sugar--thanks for the tip. there is a houstons 5 minutes from my house so this would be a BIG find.

      at border grill (thank you so much for recommending them 'recovering vegetarian'), they will make it without the sugar; they call it their 'classic' margarita (i guess, to most folks a sugared drink would be a 'normal' margarita).

      I would say Hungry Cat also! They have great cocktails and I remember having a melon margarita that actually had crushed melon from the local Farmers Market. Yum!

            I'm not 100% positive, but I had a pear margarita at Anisette on Saturday night that I'm almost certain was only made with fresh juice.
