Lychee Margarita
Agave migrates to Southeast Asia with this Sake Haus original ($10), which introduces blanco tequila and lime to ginger liqueur and lychee. sakehaus.net

Marijuarita
There’s no booze in this marg from Sweet Dreams Vineyard, but there is some THC. Mellow out with this citrusy sipper (10-100 mg.; $14-$18). sweetdreamsvineyard.com

Barbary Fig Margarita
Some say Barbary fig. Here in the desert, we call it prickly pear. La Hacienda’s cactus-fruit margarita is extra pink thanks to hibiscus ($16). scottsdaleprincess.com/dining/la-hacienda

Cactus Blossom
Not imbibing but still want a pretty pink drink? LON’s Last Drop’s non-alcoholic prickly pear marg doppelgänger ($12) features Seedlip Grove NA “spirit,” agave, lime, prickly pear and soda. hermosainn.com

Mango Mezcarita
Smoky mezcal stands in for tequila in Los Sombreros’ twist on a mango margarita ($13). Dry Spanish fino sherry adds an almond-y note. lossombreros.com

Coconut Margarita
Put the lime in the coconut and… make a margarita? CRUjiente Tacos’ tropical marg ($10) is serving piña colada vibes, sans the sickly sweetness. crutacos.com
