Visiting Santa Fe

2016 February, Santa Fe to Debut New Margarita Trail

February 17, 2016: On February 22, National Margarita Day, a press reception and official announcement of the new Santa Fe Margarita Trail will be held at Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen, which has been called “The Motherlode of American Margaritas,” from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. sponsored by Sauza Tequila.

The new Santa Fe Margarita Trail will publicly launch May 5, 2016 as an ongoing culinary cocktail experience for visitors and Santa Fe locals alike. The Trail highlights restaurants and bars that offer a special, uniquely designed and named margarita using the finest tequilas and ingredients.

“Celebrating the best food with your best friends is at the heart of living in or visiting Santa Fe,” said Mayor Javier Gonzales. “The Santa Fe Margarita Trail will help our visitors discover exceptional mixology talent and hidden cocktail gems in our city while they create very special memories.”

A Santa Fe Margarita Trail Passport will describe participating establishments and include the recipe for each margarita. Passports will be available for three dollars to those 21 and older at the establishments and at TOURISM Santa Fe Visitor Centers—and will be used to collect stamps for each margarita sampled. Passport holders can turn them in at any of the three TOURISM Santa Fe visitor centers for a special Santa Fe Margarita Trail t-shirt or other tiered gifts based on number of stamps received.

Margaritas will cost between $7 and $12. Passports can only receive two stamps per day to help ensure people drink responsibly and keep the trail fun.

“Santa Fe is world renowned for rich, traditional and original culinary fare and cocktails as well as masterful mixologists,” said Randy Randall, Executive Director for TOURISM Santa Fe. “The new Santa Fe Margarita Trail celebrates people’s love for the margarita in Santa Fe whether enjoying elegant fine dining or more casual, laid-back atmospheres. ‘The City Different’ has been a memorable destination for centuries. The Margarita Trail will complement our storied history and guide visitors to creative and fun restaurants, bars, live music, and award winning regional cuisine they’ll never forget.”
