This is your passport.
Starting the tour is as simple as purchasing a Trail Passport, which can be done via TOURISM Santa Fe Visitors Centers, directly from any participating establishment, or by downloading the paid Margarita Trail Passport app from either the Apple or Google app stores. Once you have your passport and included map, you are free to head out and sample any of the special Margaritas scattered across town.
At each stop, you can collect a physical or digital stamp that will qualify you for membership in the Margarita Society (which conveys additional benefits), signed copies of The Great Margarita Book, and a Margarita bartender kit. You can only collect two stampers per day (drink responsibly!), but you are invited to come back to the tour as often as you like to sample the next signature Margarita on your quest for cocktail conquest.
A guide to our first stops.
To help get you started, we stepped out on our own Margarita Trail experience. Keep reading to hear about our first three stops, an expedition headed by our own Christine Robertson—general manager of Fort Marcy Hotel Suite—and retold in her own words.
