VisitDallas launched the Margarita Mile as a way to commemorate and celebrate Dallas, TX, as the birthplace of the frozen margarita machine. Restaurateur Mariano Martinez invented the frozen margarita machine in Dallas almost 50 years ago, forever freezing in time the city’s claim to America’s favorite cocktail. That first machine now sits in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Guests can now enjoy decades of heritage on the Margarita Mile — a curated collection of Dallas’ best and brightest margaritas, conveniently collected in a colorful app. In addition to earning fun prizes along the way, the Margarita Mile is one of the best ways to experience Dallas’ diverse neighborhoods and cultures — one cocktail at a time.
