The first time I stopped at Diablitos Cantina, it was the last stop of my Margarita Run. The decor was very interesting and the Margaritas very good, so I wanted to come back again soon. I finally got the chance and made sure I took full advantage.
The first thing we did was order a pitcher of their house Margarita to share. The ingredients listed were 100% blue weber tequila, fresh squeezed lime juice, triple sec and a hint of sugar. Diablitos house Margarita was very good, although the flavor was a little more tart on the lime component than I usually like. I could tell they use sugar instead of Agave nectar, and perhaps this influenced the tartness. Still the overall flavor was good and well-balanced so I give Diablitos house Margarita an 8 that night.
However, I wasn’t finished! I wanted to try another of Diablitos’ Margaritas so I ordered a “top shelf” Margarita for myself. The menu listed the ingredients of the top shelf: Hornitos reposado tequila, Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao, plus fresh squeezed lime juice and a hint of sugar. It was very similar to their house Margarita, but the tequila flavor was a little more pronounced and I could taste the flavor of triple sec. The top shelf Margarita that night had a better overall balance and I gave it an 8.5 out of 10.
By the way, the food that night at Diablitos was excellent. One of the neat features of Diablitos is their salsa bar. You can sample many different and unique type of salsas with a variety of flavors and heat levels. I think this definitely goes well with a Margarita, so don’t hesitate to visit Diablitos Cantina.
