We don't care about your silly cosmopolitan, and you can keep your mojito. The greatest of all cocktails is the margarita--lime, triple sec and tequila rule
. There are lots of great margaritas in this town, but there is no place where it's more fun to down one than Toma! Cantina, the gorgeously colorful, cozy bar at El Charro downtown (311 N. Court Ave.), which boasts one of the city's largest tequila selections. With the affable Ray Flores behind the bar and Carlotta Flores in the kitchen, you're in good, good hands at El Charro.
