Let's face it, regardless of the temperature outside, frozen Margaritas are never a bad idea.
However, Margaritas can be pretty difficult to master (especially when you're already tipsy and you go a tad overboard with the tequila and the bottled lime juice). Until now, that is.
This frozen Margarita recipe shows off the traditional flavour of a Margarita -- a smooth balance of sweet and tangy, with a powerful yet palatable hit of tequila. It's the perfect base to enjoy either as is or, if you're feelin' fancy, to pimp out with your favourite flavours.
Trying experimenting with the flavours of the season -- add in mango for a summer twist or figs or pears for winter.
El Camino Cantina's Frozen Margarita
1. Fill a heavy duty blender with crushed/smashed ice.
- 90ml 100 percent agave tequila
- 30ml Triple Sec (Cointreau)
- 60ml Freshly squeezed lime Juice
- 15ml Agave syrup
- 15ml Sugar syrup (1 part water: 2 parts sugar)
3. Blend until smooth.
4. Salt or sugar rim two Margarita glasses: Spread salt or sugar on one plate and lime juice on another, then dip each glass rim into the lime juice and then in the salt/sugar to coat.
5. Carefully pour the frozen Margarita into each glass.
For different flavour options (to be added into the blender with other ingredients):
- 60ml fresh orange juice for orange Margarita
- Handful of ripe strawberries for strawberry Margarita
- One ripe mango for mango Margarita
- Three ripe figs for fig Margarita.
- Or let your imagination run wild...
