Babalu

There are five to choose from (and five you’ll love), but only three follow the recipe and use tequila: the Baba-Rita (agave nectar, sour mix, POM and triple sec, $9.50), Mojarita (agave nectar, lime mint and sour mix, $8) and the Pineapple Margarita (house-infused pineapple tequila, sour mix and triple sec, $9).

For something a little different, try the Shine-A-Rita (Sugarlands Peach & Lemonade Moonshine, sour mix, agave nectar and rosemary, $10) or the Champarita, tried and loved by the Agenda team (LaMarca Prosecco, agave nectar, sour mix and triple sec, $8.50).

The seasonal margarita is on rotation, and featured now is the Blood Orange Margarita.
