3. Merchant Bar

The most popular margarita is very creative—Hey Mamacita is made with jalapeño-infused el Jimador Blanco Tequila, Mezcal, lemon, pineapple juice and vanilla syrup and is with a large rock. | 426 N. Market St., Wilmington, 543-5574

4. Cocina Lolo

Around the corner from Merchant Bar, check out The Cadillac Margarita. This decadent concoction gets its name from the Grand Marnier floater and the clever smoked Maldon Sea Salt rim. | 405 N. King St., Wilmington, 384-6186

5. Del Pez Mexican Gastropub
