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.

You’ll need

  • 6 ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
  • Enough ice to fill the blender
  • Good tequila
  • Lime
  • Triple sec or Grand Marnier

Mix it up

  1. Empty the contents of the frozen limeade concentrate (I like Minute Maid’s concentrate) into the blender. Don’t throw away the can.
  2. Fill the blender with ice.
  3. 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.
  4. Take the same can again and fill it ¾ of the way up with good tequila (try Sauza Conmemorativo or Sauza Hornitos Reposado).
  5. Squeeze in the juice of one big lime
  6. Blend it. Dress the glass. Pour it in.

It makes four to five big margaritas. Salud!
