Jimmy Buffett sang about “that frozen concoction that helps me hang on” from his porch swing on a tropical island. But here in Boston, we don’t all have much outdoor furniture to luxuriate on besides a creaky fire escape, unless you pull a Cosmo Kramer and install a faux screen door, potted plants, and a lawn chair in your apartment hallway. Therefore, we’re forced to go indoors in search of the perfect margarita Buffett sings of.
As the winner of “Boston’s Best Margarita” for multiple years, Cactus Club is the perfect location to escape the concrete jungle that is Boston and channel your vacation-lacking blues into an empty margarita glass. Located on Boylston St. amidst a famous row of bars, Cactus Club is ideal for a happy hour with co-workers, or even a special birthday for your tequila lovin’ friend. Margarita flavors include everything from the traditional to pomegranate and blackberry (our personal favorite!)
When it comes to food, Cactus Club offers the typical Mexican fare you would expect to find in any cantina. While their food isn’t as famous as their drinks, we certainly love their burritos. The mahi mahi tacos with mango and pineapple salsa are also a fun departure from the traditional burrito and quesadilla meal. No matter what you choose from the food menu, do yourself a favor and have a fresh ‘rita. We know Jimmy Buffett would approve all the way from his porch swing in the Caribbean.
