Let’s talk about cocktails, shall we? Everyone that knows me will confirm that I am a wine-lover. If we’re out to dinner or in a social setting, wine is normally my drink of choice. That being said, I love a good margarita.
I think that if I’m going to have a real cocktail, it should be fun. And frozen margaritas are basically grown-up slushies. Does it get more fun than that?!
I always feel like I shouldn’t order a frozen drink when we’re out somewhere. I’ve never been a bartender or worked in a restaurant, but I imagine it’s probably pretty annoying to have to blend up something frozen when you’re busy instead of mixing a quick, cocktail shaker beverage. Maybe that’s why I love my at-home margarita recipe so much. My dad has been making these for friends and family for years, and they are always a hit!
Quick. Simple ingredients. Delicious.
So… want to make them? All it takes is a can of frozen limeade, tequila, triple sec, a splash of lemon-lime soda and some ice. Oh, and a blender!
This is also an easy recipe to personalize to your liking. Add in some strawberries or mango if you want! Eliminate the alcohol and up the amount of lemon-lime soda to make a mocktail. Almost anything goes! Below is a super delicious Blackberry Margarita I made for an upcoming post… same recipe, just added a blackberry reduction to the blender too. Check back for the recipe in a few days!
Better Than the Bar Frozen Margaritas
- 1/2 can frozen limeade
- 3 oz tequila
- 1 1/2 oz triple sec
- splash lemon lime soda
- salt and lime wedges (optional for garnish)
Scoop half of the can of frozen limeade directly to the blender. Add the tequila, triple sec and soda.
Add ice to the blender pitcher until it is about 2/3 of the way full. (Less ice=more liquid-y margarita. Adjust to your preference.)
Blend until no ice chunks remain. Pour immediately into glasses (garnished with salt and lime if desired).
Hope you enjoy!
