I can honestly say that this is the best frozen margarita recipe that I have ever tried! And I am a margarita girl through and through. It is easy, natural, and so tasty. I have this crazy obsession with Mexican food, I could eat it everyday if needed. So when I became old enough to drink, margaritas were the first thing I fell in love with of course. This recipe will not give you traditional green/yellowish margaritas. (I have no beef with green margaritas, they are all great. I promise).
the mister whipped these up last Saturday and I think this might just be a new tradition in our house come summertime. Saturday's are now margarita days! Who agrees? This recipe will serve 3 large margaritas.
4 ounces (1/2 cup) tequila
2 ounces (1/4 cup) Orange Patron (You can use Triple Sec or Cointreau)
2 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
4 ounces (1/2 cup) honey (You can use simple syrup if you don't have honey)
12 ounces of ice.
We have this really cute little blender that we bought to make smoothies in. Well, we haven't made smoothies but as a small margarita blender.... it ROCKS! We had to split the recipe in two to fit it in the blender but it worked great.
If you can't tell, we love these glasses. We use them for everything. They have been around the block a lot, but most recently here. Purchased at Marshall's.
Public Service Announcement: Saturday is National Margarita Day! This holiday is special in my book, so I hope you celebrate. If you try this recipe this weekend, let me know what you think.
