Let’s talk about what we are using for this margarita cocktail!

Frozen Berries – it is important that the berries are frozen to help give you the frozen drink consistency. Any combination of berries that you have works great!

Tequila – any tequila of choice. I would not use anything expensive since the flavor will be masked by the fruits.

Triple Sec – a classic orange flavored liquor used in margaritas. You could also use Grand Marnier.

Orange Juice – helps balance the tartness of the berries and brings a little citrus flare

Lime Juice – for brightness in the drink

Honey – we are using just enough to amp up the flavors without making this overly sweet. You can also use agave.

Ice – to help make it frozen and a slushy consistency

Making the Margaritas

All you have to do is blend everything together in a blender and serve!

If you over blend, the ice is so small it melts fast and gets thinner. But if you leave the ice too large, it feels chunky and icy. So blend just until it is smooth.

Serve immediately as it will start melting! Easily adjust batch size up or down as needed.

What is the difference between a margarita and a frozen margarita?

A margarita is typically made by incorporating the liquids and serving over ice. A frozen margarita blends the liquids with ice and sometimes frozen ingredients such as frozen fruit to make a slushy-like consistency.

How do you make a frozen margarita not watery?

A watery margarita can be because it was blended for too long, making the ice too fine which melts faster. It could also be that there was not enough ice or frozen ingredients to make it thick.

Can you use frozen fruit for cocktails?

Absolutely! Fruit in cocktails is often smashed or blended, and frozen fruit is perfect for this. Frozen is especially great for frozen blended drinks as it helps give you the slushy consistency that you want.

Do you get more alcohol in a frozen margarita?

This will depend on the recipe, but typically a frozen margarita does not contain more alcohol than its rocks counterpart. The frozen differences comes from frozen ingredients and ice while the rest is typically the same.
