Since the article is being published on May 5, 2021 (a.k.a. Cinco de Mayo), it is fitting to keep this list at five. Or, cinco mejores margaritas, for our Spanish readers.

Did You Know?

Did you know the real reason behind Cinco De Mayo is to celebrate the Mexican Army's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862? (Thanks, History.)

Also, if my memory serves me correctly, the beer sales on Cinco de Mayo are equal to the amount sold on Super Bowl Sunday.

Though this article isn't beer it will focus on the next best booze-filled drink, the glorious margarita, according to Yelp.

If you've ever asked yourself where some of the best margaritas are around Rockford this list will be your guide. And, as an added bonus, I've tossed in two spots north of the border that are definitely worth the drive.
