Apricot Margarita @ Jardines in San Juan Bautista

This is a tasty Apricot Margarita ($7) made with locally grown apricots from Hollister (very close to San Juan Bautista, CA).  I remember my grandfather drinking apricot juice every morning when I was young, so when I took my first sip of the Margarita I had a flood of memories of my grandparents come back. At the time, I never dreamed of Apricot juice in a Margarita.  I’ve never seen this flavor margarita listed anywhere else, have you? It is a good local treat on a day trip from San Jose or Santa Cruz out into the country, to take part in the slower life.

On a sunny day, sit back and sip away on the patio at Jardines as you listen to live music and munch on nachos.  If you’re not in the mood for a Margarita, check out Manny’s Mary (Spicy Bloody Mary w/ Tequila) or the Cafe Mexicano (Hot Coffee Combined With Coffee Liqueur, Tequila, and Topped With Whipped Cream).

You can make your trip to drink an Apricot Margarita a day trip to the outlets in Gilroy or to hike at Pinnacles Nat’l Park (see our suggested California Day Trip Itinerary here).
