Drink Your Way Through Tennessee On The Margarita Marathon
Margaritas remind us of the dog days of summer, those heated afternoons that keep us reaching for pitchers of something chilly and refreshing. Although Tennessee is nowhere near the great culinary country of Mexico, that doesn’t mean the state isn’t able to bring a really good margarita to the table. We’ve covered quite a few miles throughout Tennessee to bring you some of our favorites from across the state.
Take a look below, and see if your favorite hot spot made the list. If not, leave your recommendations in the comments!
