Best non-frozen margarita in Manhattan?

All in the title. I did a search and didn't find anything.

    1. Mayahuel has a very good margarita. Friends like the grapefruit habanero one at Barrio Chino, but I assume you're looking for a classic one: high quality tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime (not sour mix), served up or on the rocks.

        Yep, classic on the rocks preferably. (Although grapefruit habanero does sound amazing.)

        1. Maz Mezcal. I go there all the time. Their bar men have been working there for years and they have the margaritas down to an art. Delicious!

          1. Second Mayahuel, though it'd be a shame to just order a classic with so many other creative cocktails on the menu.

            Barrio Chino makes a solid one as well, and their two spicy ones - lime/jalapeno and grapefruit/habanero - are very well balanced.

            Toloache and Crema both have good ones as well.

            1. TOLOACHE makes a great one. I've also had good ones at Suenos but not for some time.
