What You Need To Make Frozen Margaritas

Silver Tequila – I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – use good quality tequila! I’m sure we’ve all taken a sip of a margarita and thought, hmmmm that’s not a very good margarita. And I’m telling you, 9 times out of 10 it’s because that marg you’re sipping on was made using dirt-cheap tequila. Whenever I pick up tequila, I aim for not the most expensive, but also not the cheapest. Espolón, Patron, and Casamigos are all brands I’ve tried and would definitely recommend!

Triple Sec – For those of you that don’t know, triple sec is an orange-flavored liqueur. It adds just a touch of sweetness and some nice fresh flavor to these frozen margaritas. However, if you don’t have triple sec, you can easily use fresh squeezed orange juice instead. Fresh squeezed orange juice is lower-cal and a slightly healthier option. So use whichever you’d like in this recipe!

Agave – This natural sweetener is used in place of the simple syrup in this frozen margaritas recipe. Agave dissolves quickly and packs in quite a bit of sweetness. This sweet syrup is the perfect compliment to the otherwise tart flavors in this frozen cocktail. Just a little bit of agave is all you need to make these drinks perfectly sweet!

Make It A Mocktail

  • To make virgin frozen margaritas, substitute the tequila with grapefruit juice. Also, use fresh squeezed orange juice instead of triple sec. You’ll have a delicious and refreshing summertime mocktail!

Tips For Making Frozen Margaritas

  • Serve these margaritas immediately after making! Unfortunately, any frozen cocktail will begin to separate after blending. Especially in the warmer months! Therefore, I highly recommend preparing your ingredients and then blending everything up right before serving.
  • Feel free to add any frozen fruit you’d like! A handful of frozen strawberries would make a delicious addition to these cocktails.
  • Blend just enough, but not too much. Under-blending will result in large ice chunks throughout your drink. And let me tell you, nothing’s worse than not being able to slurp up your frozen margarita because a giant ice chunk has clogged your straw. However, if you blend them too much, they could start to melt and taste watered down.
