FROZEN MARGARITAS

we make a lot of margaritas at home but they’re always on the rocks, never frozen. i love the idea of making a big batch of frozen margaritas for a party and handing them out to your guests on a hot summer day. we created a base that’s delicious on it’s own but can also be adapted with the addition of fruit (we used watermelon, frozen mango and pineapple). the classic version is a great stand alone and if you don’t mind it being tart you can leave out the simple syrup for less sugar. the fruit flavored ones are definitely party worthy and require minimal effort if you’d like to give them a try! you can keep the garnishes simple, a salted rim, sliced limes and fruit or add a couple of edible flowers like we did. from a hosting perspective, i also appreciate that you can make an entire blender full and use it to serve five people instead of having to shake up individual ones on the rocks! and, Cinco De Mayo is next friday if you’re looking for an excuse to whip these up! – joanie

frozen margaritas
serves 5 (or 2, we don’t judge)
• 3/4 cup silver tequila
• 1/4 cup cointreau
• 1/4 cup simple syrup (leave this out if you want the limited sugar version)
• 2/3 cup fresh lime juice ( juice of 5-6 limes)
• 5- 7 cups ice

to make the fruit flavored options select one of the follow to add to the above:
• 2 cups frozen pineapple
• 2 cups frozen watermelon
• 2 cups frozen mango
if you’re adding the fruit you’re going to want to add a 1/4 cup more of tequila.

• pour everything into your blender. start with only 5 cups of ice and add more as needed, we wanted ours to be thick, where you could eat it with a spoon so we added all 7 cups. blend on high, if the blender gets stuck wait a few minutes until some of the ice melts and blend again. we made the classic version first and used it as a base for adding other frozen fruit.

we all agreed that pineapple was our favorite! also, as a note – the watermelon needs to be really ripe in order for the flavor to hold up against all of the ice.

you could also add a couple of slices of jalapeño if you’re looking to make it spicy!
