MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Each week, Mike Augustyniak visits a local mixologist to see what they’re stirring up. This week, he heads to St. Paul’s El Burrito Mercado, where they mix up a mean margarita.

(credit: CBS)

  • 2 oz Tequila (blanco or reposado, from 100% agave)
  • 2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 oz Agave Nectar
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier


Rim a margarita glass with lime juice and Kosher or margarita salt; fill glass with ice. Shake ingredients in a tin over ice, and strain into glass.  Garnish with a lime wheel.

El Burrito Mercado is a standard bearer for Mexican food and culture on St. Paul’s Westside.  You’ll find an authentic supermercado adjacent to El Cafe y Bar Restaurant, which features four unique dining experiences: cafeteria style, dine-in full service, buffet/brunch, and in the summer an outdoor patio.  They also have a private dining space for private events.
