Frozen Margarita Recipe (using ANY fruit)
These Frozen Margaritas are cold, frosty, and fruity! You can blend up a batch of these slushy margaritas in less than 5 minutes and with only a handful of ingredients. The perfect drink for any hot and sunny day.
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- ½ cup frozen fruit OR 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
- ¼ cup simple syrup recipe above
- 3 oz tequila
- 1 oz orange liqueur
- 1 cup ice
- lime wedges
- coarse sugar/salt
Heat: Add the water and sugar to a small pot, heat over medium heat. Whisk while cooking. Once sugar is completely dissolved and mixture is clear, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Blend: Add the frozen fruit of choice, or fresh lime juice, simple syrup, tequila, orange liqueur and ice to a blender (start with less ice than you think, too much ice will make the drink too thick). Blend for about 1 minute until completely mixed and no large chunks remain.
Adjust: Taste and add more ice or sweetener as needed.
Serve: Run a lime wedge around the rim of the glasses. Dip into sugar or salt. Pour margarita into glass, serve and enjoy!
- Simple Syrup: can sub with agave syrup if desired as a sweetener.
- This simple syrup recipe will make enough for 6-8 margaritas, leftovers can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for 3-5 days.
- Tequila: use a 100% Agave Tequila. Either a blanco or a reposada will work well in this recipe.
- Orange Liqueur: Triple Sec is a common option, you could also use Cointreau.
- Alcohol amounts: This recipe includes slightly more than one shot per drink. Amounts of alcohol can be adjusted according to preference.
- Large Batches: Keep the ratios the same, and prepare a larger batch of margaritas at one time.
