How to Make Frozen Margaritas in 2 Easy Steps


Here's the formula to help you nail frozen margaritas at home. Go ahead and whip up a batch for practice (we won't tell):

  • 5 cups frozen fruit
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1 cup tequila
  • ⅔ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup Triple Sec
  • ¼ cup simple syrup

Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. (Store extra simple syrup covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.)

2. Blend and enjoy

Puree everything in a blender until smooth and enjoy!
