Hemingway's Tropical Bar & Grill, in the historic downtown Marietta Square, features food and beverage in a relaxing "Key West atmosphere." Patrick Burke of Hemingway's recommends using a "good old-fashioned plastic cup with ice [no need for fancy drinkware here]. The frosty cold feeling on your hands is part of the margarita experience." A shot glass is useful for measuring, with a shot equal to 1 1/2 ounces.
