Margarita @ Torero’s (Durham) — Cocktail ReviewPosted in : Bars and Tasting Rooms, Bars in Durham - NC on by : The Gourmez

Torero’s house margarita comes in four sizes: regular, macho, grande, and gigante. This is a regular size glass:
Believe me, the gigante glass was terrifying to behold.
Torero’s makes their own margarita mix and on first sip, it was sweet, and I feared too much so. Subsequent sips quickly allayed my fears as the sour citrus juices came to the forefront. By the time I was done with the glass, I was praying for more sweetness to balance them out. The drink had plenty of tequila but I’d recommend opting for a top shelf brand over the well offering to counter the mix better.
It was drinkable for me, but not a margarita that made me thirst for more.
