Traditionally, a margarita consists of tequila, orange liqueur (triple sec), and lime juice.
What is the Difference Between a Margarita and a Frozen Margarita?
A traditional margarita is made with tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice shaken in a cocktail shaker and served “on the rocks” aka in a glass over ice. A frozen margarita is made with all of those same ingredients, except it’s blended with ice instead for a smooth, slushy-like drink.
This frozen strawberry margarita recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients.
- Strawberries - you’ll need 4-5 fresh strawberries, hulled and halved.
- Ice - ice cubes are needed to give the cold drink its slushy texture.
- Tequila - a tiny airplane sized bottle of Patron Silver Tequila is perfect.
- Triple Sec - you’ll just need 2 standard shots of triple sec to give the margarita that classic citrusy flavor.
- Sugar - for a touch of sweetness.
- Lime Juice - use fresh lime juice for the best flavor.
- Salt - a pinch of salt cuts the sweetness and creates delicious contrast to the sweeter flavors.
How to Make a Frozen Strawberry Margarita
This frozen margarita recipe really could not be simpler!
First, combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, then serve into a salt rimmed glass!
How Much Sugar is in a Strawberry Margarita?
This single serving frozen margarita contains just 2 teaspoons of sugar. I like to add a little bit to give it a little touch of sweetness. You can totally add more or less to taste!
If you’d rather not use sugar, add a drizzle of agave syrup instead of leave it out entirely.
Tips and Notes
- To salt the rim, squeeze a little bit of lime juice into a shallow bowl and add a little bit of salt into a separate shallow bowl. Dip the rim of the glass first into the lime juice followed by the salt, then it’s good to go!
- Make more! Feel free to double or triple the recipe if you want. Whatever you can comfortably fit in the blender will work.
- Use other fruit. Make this into whatever kind of fruit margarita you want. Try mango, raspberry, blueberry, you name it.
Can You Make Frozen Margaritas Ahead of Time?
Totally! Just blend it all up ahead of time and store it in the freezer. The alcohol will prevent it from freezing fully and it will become even more slushy-like.
When you’re ready to serve, simply blend it again to give it a little refresh, and enjoy!
What to serve with frozen margaritas
If you want to pair these delicious frozen margaritas with something other than pool floaties and sunscreen, try serving them alongside carne asada nachos, Better Homes and Gardens Fish Tacos, or lamb barbacoa.
