    Get your glasses ready, because National Margarita Day arrives tomorrow! This is one holiday we can definitely get into, and it only makes sense that we'd want to honor this mega-refreshing, jet-fueled cocktail in style. So, we've rounded up some of the best tasting tequila-infused drinks in town.

    If you prefer a little mixology, meet the margarita sampler at Red O, featuring the Alacaran Margarita (a gorgeous concoction made with Sauza Commemorative tequila, Veev Acai spirit, Torres orange liqeur, fresh limonada, and serrano-infused syrup), and two other innovative takes on the tequila classic are must-sips at only $15 a pop.

    The Benjiman, aka the $100 Margarita is for high-rollers only, made with three types of extra anejo tequila including: Gran Patron Burdeos, Partida Elegante, Herradura Seleccion Suprema, Grand Marnier Cuvee du Cent Cinquantenaire, freshly squeezed Mexican lime juice, organic agave syrup, served with housemade lime sorbet ice cubes, and finished with Louis XIII Cognac, blood orange caviar, edible gold, and a rim full of Kosher salt on a silver platter with a stainless-steel straw. Now, that's a mega marg!

    If simplicity is more your style, head over to Casa Vega, one of L.A.'s most popular Mexican restaurants for more than 55 years, where happy hour never ends with the Casa Vega Margarita being offered at $4.95, and Cadillac Margaritas at $8.41. We're keeping our eye on the refreshing Blood Orange Margarita made with Patron silver, blood orange juice, a touch of agave nectar, and lime. We'll drink to that!
