When the cold month of February has you wishing you were under Mexico’s sun, know that you can always find margaritas to sip. After all, when life gives you limes, margaritas must be made.

Here are six great places in Calgary where you can drink margaritas.

With 10 different fruit-licious varieties on the menu including guava, mango, blood orange, strawberry rhubarb and chili coconut, this would be the cheapest trip you’ve ever taken to Mexico. Order options include half jugs (now don’t forget to pick your jaw up off the floor). Enjoy $6 margaritas everyday from 3 to 5 pm.
