Patrón clearly knows a thing or (seven) about making about amazing margaritas, as evidenced by the internationally-inspired Margarita of the Year contenders, and love for the classic cocktail doesn’t stop there. New and exciting margaritas and the experiences surrounding them are popping up all over the country, and Santa Fe is leading the charge by giving locals and tourists alike a fun way to enjoy a variety of flavors and Patrón tequilas along the Santa Fe Margarita Trail.
What’s the Margarita Trail?
Santa Fe’s Margarita Trail includes 31 of the best restaurants and bars in Santa Fe that serve specially crafted margaritas with only the highest quality tequilas, including some very tasty Patrón variations. Buy a passport for only $3.00 at any TOURISM Santa Fe Visitor Center and map your route to try margaritas made with local ingredients like prickly pear, spicy chiles, and even an exclusive blend of Patrón Barrel Select tequila.
Along with getting to taste the best margaritas in town, the more stamps you collect in your passport, the more swag you’ll score. After only five stamps, you’ll get a commemorative T-shirt, and the gifts only get better from there – 20 stamps will earn you a copy of The Great Margarita Book signed by author and margarita expert, Al Lucero. And those who complete the trail will be rewarded for their determination to deliciousness with a Margarita Bartender Kit, perfect for mixing up your favorite Patrón margarita at home.
Why Santa Fe?
The beautiful scenery of New Mexico, the rich local art culture, and vibrant regional flavors make Santa Fe a city worth savoring. Considered by many to be the origin of tequila in the U.S. after Conquistadors brought the earliest iteration of the brew over from Mexico, Santa Fe is a hot bed of margarita creativity with great tequila at the heart of it all. But the idea for The Margarita Trail didn’t come to fruition until Patrón introduced the world to its high-quality, premium tequila, raising the bar for margaritas and the restaurants that serve them.
When can I go?
If a trip to Santa Fe isn’t in your near future, worry not, The Santa Fe Margarita Trail is always available, and it’s only getting bigger and better as the years go by. Plus, passports are valid for the life of the trail so you can make The City Different one of your go-to destinations to keep your stamps going strong.
