Description

One of the best frozen alcoholic drinks? Frozen margaritas! This recipe is refreshingly simple with just 4 simple ingredients, which blend into a party-sized pitcher in minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 ounces (¾ cup) tequila blanco or reposado
  • 4 ounces (½ cup) Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces (¼ cupsimple syrup
  • 4 ½ cups ice
  • For the rim: kosher salt or pink sea salt

Instructions

  1. Place the salt on a plate and wet the rim of the glasses (it’s easiest to cut a notch into a lime and run it around the glass). Dip the outside edge of the rims into the margarita salt. 
  2. Place the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and fluffy. Pour into the prepared glasses and serve*. If desired, garnish with lime wedges. 

Notes

*Make ahead tip: To make this drink in advance, mix up the liquids prior to serving and refrigerate up to 2 days in advance. Blend up the drink right immediately serving. You can also freeze your glasses prior to serving to slow the drink from melting (freeze them 30 minutes to 2 hours in advance).

Fruity variations: Replace the ice in the recipe above with 4 cups frozen strawberries or diced frozen mango cubes.
