Margaritas

I like them. I drink them. But I had a discussion with a friend of mine; too fruity for men to drink or are they a-ok?

    frozen + salted rim = chick



    rocks + no salt = dude



    I make mine with Petron Silver and they are absolutely wonderful. I had 2 just last night.

    I don't really care on the frozen v. on-the-rocks or salt v. no salt.



    I like all variations. And I like a lot of it.

    Ah. You're not into strawberry, are you? I mean, they're pink, man. C'mon. You're a Texan. I'm starting to see why your friend may be concerned.

    Call me crazy but I never think about gender issues while drinking a tasty margarita. Or just drinking in general. Why am I still drunk?

    I would consider myself a very manly drinker. Aside from beer, which I love, I like whiskey, dark rum, vodka (but not gin), and the like. I drink them mostlt straight or on the rocks, but occasionally mixed with coke or ginger ale.



    I will also admit that there is a time and a place for hard cider, hard lemonade, and the other alco-pops, but margaritas I just can't take. It's not a matter of it being girly, it's a matter of me not being able to withstand any kind of triplesec and most kinds of tequila. I'll drink a glass of Lagavulin anytime, but tequila is just awful. Triplesec is worse.



    Everytime my friends and I end up at a mexican restaurant and they order margaritas I envy them -- but I just can't do it!

    For hot weather days, among the most refreshing and delicious of concoctions ever created!



    If you're a he-man, don't drink ANYTHING through a straw...



    Hey g-rat, have you been over to Chuy's off of Barton ( I think...) for some of those Mexican smoothies... Ummm. Good Tex-Mex chow too.

    Splinemodel, don't feel bad. Many folks for various reasons just can't handle that crazy cactus juice...

    They're both. I think they are a bit girly. But still, too good to be passed up anyway in spite of that.

    There's a place here in the city that as long as the cops aren't hanging outside will actually sell you a Margarita to go. There's nothing like walking around downtown sipping on a frozen margarita. Oh, and its also my favorite Mexican restaraunt and they always have a baseball game on.

    When you're a poor college student in Austin, you've been to Chuy's. Best value for good tex-mex in Austin.



    But I don't know why the hell they use flour tortillas for enchiladas... baffling.

    It's been a few years since I last visited Chuy's. I swear I don't recall flour tort enchiladas! That's so freaken lame... You might as well just go to a Taco Bell or Del Taco. Sheesh. I hope the rest of their menu isn't being "Taco/Dell/Bell-ized".



    Even gringo's here in So Cal know better...

    This is great guidance. Guys should not drink frozen margaritas. Salt on the rim can go either way. I don't like it, but it always has to be on the rocks.

    Rocks/No salt is the only way to go - for me at least.

    Love a good margarita.

    I sooooo want a frozen drink right now.



    But the painkillers I'm on do NOT go well with alcohol.
