8. Lucy's Cantina Royale at the Shelborne
This beachy bar at the newly renovated Shelborne Beach Resort is one of the few hotel bars that welcomes locals in from a hot stroll on SoBe's boardwalk. Custom make your Margarita with one of 50 different top-shelf tequilas, or let the barkeeps make you one using an array of fresh fruits. The poncho de sandia ($13) is especially refreshing, with muddled watermelon, Cabo wabo tequila, and fresh lime juice.

7. The Raleigh
At first, you might not equate the sophisticated Raleigh martini bar with a fantastic Margarita. Then again, the original Mexican cocktail was, indeed, a classy affair. The Raleigh's Frida ($15) is a blend of watermelon for color and Zarco tequila for kick. If your taste buds find a hint of spice and sweetness, it's because of the fresh basil and sage muddled in.

The Lolita @ the River Oyster Bar is great, if you like a spicy margarita.  And Wood Tavern has a great hand-crafted margarita for $7, which is a steal in this town.

I shouldnt be spreading this around, but Cantina Laredo at Gulfstream gives you big ass, good margaritas for $5 during their happy hour.

 Have to honestly say I haven't tried the Wood Tavern Margarita.  Must do so. Thanks for the tip.
