In 1971, the first frozen-margarita machine was invented in Dallas. It’s been the city’s unofficial drink ever since. For National Tequila Day (July 24), here are our favorite stops along the city’s official Margarita Mile.

One of the original homes of Tex-Mex cuisine, El Fenix’s “Original” has been a fan favorite in Dallas for years and is under $5 on weekdays during happy hour. Want some extra flair? Try ordering it in strawberry, mango, peach or watermelon.

Prickly Pear Puree Margarita
Matt’s Rancho Martinez
This pretty, pink margarita looks as though it’s made for the ‘Gram. Getting its color from a prickly pear purée that’s finished off with Milagro silver tequila and homemade sweet and sour, the drink is just as delicious as it is attractive.
