Best Frozen Margarita Recipe Ever
There’s a good reason cocktail fans need their own frozen margarita recipe. There is nothing as disappointing to a real margarita fan than ordering this favorite Mexican cocktail at a bar or restaurant and getting a salty glass filled with half-melted neon green sludge. To make matters worse, it usually has a teaspoon of bottom-shelf tequila and a cup of sugar. Wrong.
Skip the headache – the one you’ll have when you get your drink, and the inevitable one you’ll have the day after – by making your own. Break out the blender cause this one is great, y’all. It’s got all the flavor of a $16 margarita, and requires just a bit more effort that pulling the lever on a margarita machine.
- 6 ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
- Enough ice to fill the blender
- Good tequila
- Triple sec or Grand Marnier
Mix it up
- Empty the contents of the frozen limeade concentrate (I like Minute Maid’s concentrate) into the blender. Don’t throw away the can.
- Fill the blender with ice.
- Using the same empty concentrate can as a measuring cup, fill it half-way with triple sec or Grand Marnier and empty into the blender.
- Take the same can again and fill it ¾ of the way up with good tequila (try Sauza Conmemorativo or Sauza Hornitos Reposado).
- Squeeze in the juice of one big lime
- Blend it. Dress the glass. Pour it in.
