Much like your choice of pet and feelings about paper straws, your margarita order says a lot about your personality. So you might feel a bit overwhelmed when presented with all twenty-one different margarita offerings at Calabrije’s in Bushwick. Take it as a fun opportunity to express yourself. Don’t let the divey interior fool you, this colorful bar makes incredibly delicious margaritas with fresh lime and agave, served either on the rocks or frozen. Our top pick was the jalapeno-tamarind margarita, with its perfect balance of tang and spice. But we’re confident you’ll love whichever margarita you order from this narrow bar on Starr Street.
