4 places to score jumbo margaritas this weekend

Ay Chiwowa

Since today is officially the 51-day anniversary of Cinco de Mayo (!!!), we're celebrating the only way we know how: by giving you four places to score giant-ass margaritas in Chicago this weekend.

Revolución Steakhouse

34oz Revolución Margarita

Revolución Steakhouse (address and info)
Lakeview
You can't get liter-a-Cola (or even a large Farva), but you can get yourself a liter of ‘rita at Revolución that's made with Camarena Reposado, Gran Gala orange liqueur, agave nectar, and fresh lime. It’s huge, classic, and delicious. 

Colin Joliat

45.5oz Jumbo-Rita

Cocina Tarascas (address and info)
Lincoln Park
You can either build your own 45.5oz margarita at Tarascas, or admit you know nothing and choose one of its many options. You can even get a Sangria Swirl Margarita if you’re feeling... well, swirly.

Sean Cooley

56oz Kegged Cocktails

¡Ay Chiwowa! (address and info)
River North
Question: what do passion fruit tea, açaí, jalapeño, grapefruit, and cucumber all have in common? Answer: they’re all ingredients in different jumbo margaritas at ¡Ay Chiwowa!. You might get tipsy drinking one, but you certainly won’t get bored!

El Hefe

64oz Macho-Garita

El Hefe (address and info)
River North
El Hefe’s standard ‘rita is a sizable 20oz, but the real action is the Macho-Garita, which weighs in at a ridiculous two quarts! The drink -- made with Dobel, agave, sweet & sour, and fresh-squeezed limes -- is so big you can’t order it solo. We sure hope you have one friend!
