Frozen Margaritas Your Way

We love frozen margaritas. They’re just the thing to take the edge off a hot Saturday night in Houston. They don’t just go with Tex-Mex or Mexican food, either. Try a Margarita with Thai food – you’ll love it!Margaritas are typically made from silver tequila, lime juice and an orange liqueur, such as triple sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier. But you can substitute just about any fruity liqueur for the orange liqueur. A couple of years ago, I got in the habit of trying different liqueurs in each batch of frozen Margaritas I whipped up. One night, I asked Jim which flavor he wanted most. He felt like Margaritas with Midori, a bright green melon liqueur. As soon as he said that, I was disappointed. I realized that I was craving Hpnotic Margaritas (Hpnotic is a cognac-passion fruit blend.) So, I figured out a way that we could both have what we wanted.

Frozen Margaritas Your Way

6 ounces (3/4 cup) frozen limeade concentrate
6 ounces (3/4 cup) silver tequila
juice of 1 lime (optional)
ice (about 3 trays worth)
as assortment of fruity liqueurs, including, but not limited to:
triple sec
Cointreau
Curaçao
Grand Marnier
Midori melon liqueur
Hpnotic
Alize cranberry or passion fruit liqueur
lemoncello

Add limeade concentrate, tequila, and lime juice to a blender jar. Add ice to the top. Puree (you may need to let the blender run for 5 minutes or more for smooth Margaritas.)

Divide Margaritas into 4 glasses. Add 1 tablespoon of liqueur to each glass and stir gently. Add a straw.

  1. We don’t drink our margaritas frozen ever, but I might try it this summer. I have every one of those liquors mentioned (I’m really not a soakie!) and I think we could really come up with something fantastic. We love floating in the pool with something frosty and cold. This might hit the spot! Thanks for sharing your recipe here Claire!

    It sounds like you might have some that I don’t. Let me know what I’m missing!
