When you think of margaritas, you automatically think of sipping them while you're on a white sandy beach in Mexico. There's a place in Canada where you can get a giant margarita that will make you feel like you've been transported straight to Mexico. Calgary's giant margaritas are a must-try for anyone looking to get a tequila buzz this summer.
Tropical in Calgary serves giant margaritas that made for anyone who swears they're only having one drink tonight. They're so massive that it'll feel just like you're day drinking with a few amigos in Mexico. You get all of the indulgences of a Mexican vacation with less than half of the regret!
Tropical has four giant share cocktails on their menu including their signature giant margarita! You can also get a giant piña colada, watermelon bulldog (actually served in a watermelon) or a giant mojito. Each of these massive cocktails is meant to share between at least three friends and costs between $18 to $35.
With indoor palm trees, Latin flavours and plenty of giant fruity cocktails, this place makes a night out feel like a vacation. They even have a great patio that's perfect for summer sipping. While you're finishing your giant cocktail, you can fill up on their Latin street food-inspired menu of nachos, tacos, quesadillas, empanadas and more.
If you weren't already convinced to hit up Tropical sometime this summer, then this will be the kicker. This is their Duckie-bowl made with six ounces of rum and it's green colour comes from its being half blue Hawaii cocktail and half sex on the beach cocktail. Plus, you get to keep the rubber ducks!
