I love a frozen margarita.

Probably because I associate frozen margaritas with Las Vegas, and I also love Las Vegas. But that’s a topic for another time (/several chapters of my memoir.)

With that said, the one downside of most frozen margaritas is the amount of sugar involved, which is unfortunate for yours truly on both the taste and hangover fronts. I prefer a tart-sweet margarita, hold the splitting headache, please and thank you.

I’ve been tweaking my frozen margarita recipe for years, and while many versions have been good, this one is GREAT. It’s boozy and bright, and the use of frozen strawberries gives it the perfect texture and allows you to skip the ice (which dilutes the flavor). A touch of honey provides just enough sweetness to balance the fresh lime juice’s tang in this frosty libation, and the result is nothing less than frozen cocktail perfection.

As always, this recipe was made to be used as a roadmap for your fantasy fruity frozen margarita. Not into strawberries? Use any berry you like! Or take things in a tropical direction with frozen pineapple or mango. Peach is also fun.

If you’re looking to get a little adventurous with your margaritas, try adding some fresh basil, cilantro or mint into the mix. A few slices of jalapeño are also an excellent idea for my fellow spice lovers.

This frozen strawberry margarita recipe makes two cocktails, but it’s easily multiplied if you wish to whip up a pitcher to share with friends (or fill the yard-long margarita glass you smuggled home from Vegas…). It’s a truly excellent addition to any and all warm weather soirées.

CHEERS!

    Missed your e-mails so was happy to see this one! This is my kind of frozen drink- like you said low on sugar and hangovers but also frozen fruit makes it easy too. .. However, you had me at Las Vegas… laughed when you mention the yard long glass from LV. I have never had one because too afraid what I would end up like after drinking that thing but can vividly picture people walking the strip with them and can’t wait to get back there. Thanks for all the great recipes and funny posts!

      Hahaha no good things happen after consuming a yard-long frozen margarita in Vegas, but then again…what happens in Vegas, etc. Hope you try this version!
