Looks like Chipotle appreciates genuine margaritas just as much as the rest of us — at least enough to completely revamp the Chipotle margarita experience just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Chipotle has actually served margaritas since they opened their first store in 1993, but the drinks were made from a mix and “weren’t as delicious as they could be,” according to Chipotle’s chief marketing officer. Customers looking to try Chipotle’s heightened alcohol experience will be able to choose between either Patron or Sauza tequila, and every single margarita will be made by hand with a mixture of lemon juice, lime juice, and organic agave nectar. The new margaritas will hit 900 Chipotle stores on April 29th, and will cost anywhere between $6.50 and $8, depending on the location and whether Patron or Sauza is your tequila of choice.
