The Margarita Pour Off hosted by 99.5 KISS hit its 30th birthday Saturday, a sure testimony to San Antonio’s love of this classic cocktail.
The occasion drew thousands of margarita lovers who wanted to enjoy a series of variations of the drink in the sun-filled Sunken Gardens. They also snacked on smoked turkey legs, chicken on a stick topped with a pickled jalapeño, corn dogs, fajitas and roasted corn on the cob while listening to the bands.
When the final drop of tequila had been consumed, the winners of the pour off were announced:
- Best margarita: Some Beach, 2831 N.W. Loop 410. The gentlemen’s club had a cucumber-jalapeño margarita.
- First runner-up: Two Step Restaurant and Cantina, 9840 N. Loop 1604 W. The restaurant offered a traditional margarita.
- People’s choice: Pericos, various locations
- Best-decorated booth: Matamoros, 12844 I-10 W.
