The debate over where the margarita got started continues, but there’s one thing that nobody questions: Las Cruces’ extensive margarita offerings are off the charts. For starters, there are the Guava Margarita, El Diablo Margarita and even the Turquoise Margarita (with a turquoise stone garnish). Just a few steps from there is La Posta de Mesilla, famous for its Chile ‘Rita: an exotic, slightly spicy margarita with a blackberry/habanero sauce, served in a hand-blown “chile” stem glass.

Guests can sample more than 50 different renditions at the Double Eagle in Mesilla.
