This thing you should try: Frozen margaritas at Taqueria Nacional

It's roughly the temperature of Venus in Washington this week. Aside from a cool, refreshing Rickey, few beverages are better for battling this brain-melting heat than a frozen margarita.

Taqueria Nacional, which relocated to new California-chic digs on T Street NW this spring, is whipping up an overflowing, 10-ounce glass of frozen deliciousness that should be on your radar. Made with fresh fruit, including tart blackberry and Pennsylvania blueberry, the icy coolers are boozy, but never too sweet. Choose either a traditional lime or flavored margarita, or layer them in a frosty glass dripping with salt for a mere $5.95. It's ideal for washing down a few of Taqueria Nacional's delicious squash blossom tacos.
