Best Tequila Selections in St. Louis
(20 Allen Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-962-4300)
Milagro may not have the same quantity of tequila as some other Mexican restaurants in town, but Milagro's selection is all about quality. It has about twenty different tequila brands behind the bar and three ages (blanco, reposado and anejo) of each brand. It's what Milagro does with its tequila that makes it so spectacular, though. The bar offers several different marg varieties including top shelf, the Milagro margarita, a house margarita, a blood-orange margarita and rotating seasonal varieties. There's also a drink called the Amante Picante with jalapeno-infused tequila that's out of this world. If you're feeling super brave, try the "El Diablo" with habanero-infused tequila. It's not for the faint of heart or stomach.
