Margarita All margaritas made at Rita’s contain tequila as opposed to wine. Tequila is produced in a handful of Mexican states, exclusively from the blue agave plant. The Mexican government has a number of rules governing the production of tequila. One of the rules regarding purity states that for a spirit to be classified as tequila, it must have a minimum of 51% agave. The highest quality is made from 100% agave. Different tequilas vary in age. The age, along with purity, affects the taste profile. All margaritas at Rita’s are made with triple sec unless an upgrade is chosen. We offer three sizes: 16 ounces, 32 ounces and 60 ounces. ” Plata” (or silver) is your typical non-aged tequila with a flavor profile most closely matching the blue agave plant it was made from. “Reposado” (or rested) is aged a minimum of two months, has a bit more color and a more multi-faceted flavor profile. “A?ñejo” (or aged) is aged for a minimum of one year, typically has the darkest coloring and definitely has the most flavorful profile.
