Lift your spirits: London’s very best margaritas for Cinco de Mayo

Though the delightfully ramshackle El Pastor in Borough Market is the original and the best, all the El Pastors shimmer with vibe; that ever elusive and yet essential concept, particularly where margaritas are concerned. No surprise, then, that El Pastor’s margs are some of the finest in town. They come frozen, straight up or on the rocks. They come flavoured with hibiscus and honeydew, spiced mango or avocado. There’s even a breakfast margarita, made with marmalade; those in the know, though, go for the spicy diabolo, which is delightfully fiery and fun. All are made with the reliably rounded El Jumador Reposado — apart from this ‘margarita month’, for which El Pastor’s Group Bar Manager, Carlos Fontoira has created a special, eponymous serve. The Carlito’s Margarita, above, features Tequila Herradura Blanco, Campari, Cointreau, lime, hibiscus, pineapple juice and is served in a highball on the rocks.
