BelAir Cantina

It's the third year running that BelAir Cantina has claimed victory as the home of Milwaukee's best margaritas.

And when it comes to those salt-rimmed quenchers, BelAir Cantina has about a dozen on its menu, including the signature "The BelAir," featuring Sauza Silver, Triple Sec, simple syrup and fresh lime.

There are also four locations just waiting to satiate your thirst: now serving on Downer Avenue, Oak Creek, Wauwatosa and Water Street. Coming soon in Brookfield.

OnMilwaukee editors' pick: Cafe Corazon

Runners up:
2. Cafe Corazon
3. Conejito's
4. Botanas
5. La Fuente

This year we also asked a variety of prominent Milwaukeeans to weigh in on their pick for specific categories. For this category, we consulted Nick Anton, former owner of La Perla and co-owner of Santino's Little Italy.

Anton's pick:

"My pick for favorite margarita (now that La Perla is gone) is from Bodegon in Hotel Madrid. They do a Spanish style margarita with El Tesoro tequila and black lava salt. Also a very dry curaçao. Quite tasty!"
