Texas Roadhouse Margarita Recipe

When you first arrive to Texas're probably thinking of two things...fajitas and a Texas Roadhouse margarita. We don't blame you. They are both incredibly delicious. What we like about this recipe is it doesn't have a strong sour taste and the mix is a nice refreshing mix of lime juice and lemon juice.

We also recommend their Kenny's Cooler or Red Bull Sunrise.

What Tequila is in the Texas Roadhouse Margarita?

If you're aiming for a top shelf tequila then we always recommend Casamigos or a similar quality blanco tequila. If you prefer a less expensive option then we recommend 1800 silver. The tequila you choose goes a long way in determining the flavor of the margarita. The legendary margarita is a great summer cocktail and nothing goes better with summer than a tequila. Also, make sure you pick a tequila that has been sourced from the Jalisco region, otherwise you're not actually having a true tequila.

What Kind of Margaritas do They Have at Texas Roadhouse?

Texas Roadhouse also has a very popular strawberry margarita, the texas roadhouse strawberry margarita is also one of our favorite cocktails. For some reason, strawberry purée and tequila go perfectly together and the Texas Roadhouse Strawberry margarita is no exception. It's perfectly sweet without being overwhelmingly so. It totally makes sense how the strawberry margarita become their signature drink.

What other Cocktails should I Try?

We also recommend the Hennessy Hustle from Buffalo wild wings as well as other delicious cocktails. THe most important part of any cocktail is the drink ingredients. Whether you're using orange juice or pineapple juice, we think it is paramount to use fresh and natural ingredients. Otherwise you could end up with a nasty hangover just due to the artificial ingredients. Legendary margaritas require legendary ingredients. So don't cheap out but make sure you're still buying the proper tools.


When you are purchasing your cocktail tools, don't overthink it. Just make sure you have some of the tools and don't be afraid to substitute when you see fit. Nobody cares how the cocktail is made, just how the drink ends up tasting.
