There are truly nearly endless variations on the Margarita. Don't believe us? We have over 20 recipes on this site alone. We love them all but, the most iconic twist on the original is the frozen margarita. There are literal machines that have been created just to create and dispense them. But we're here to say that not only does making one in your house with a standard blender is not just easier, but tastes better too.
For this recipe, there is no need for any fancy mixes. All you need is 5 ingredients and ice. The ratio is easy to remember too! 1 part simple syrup - 2 parts triple sec - 4 parts tequila - 4 parts lime juice. Cover with about twice the amount of ice and you've got the perfect accompaniment to any pool party or cookout. Remember that ratio and you can have the perfect margs for your crowd (or you know... yourself 😝).
Need pairing ideas? Well obviously the acid from the lime juice helps to cut through spicy foods like Nashville hot chicken or rich Pozole. You can also keep that bottle of tequila you used to make the drinks to spike these tequlia-lime chicken tacos. Not to mention it pairs perfectly with our Margarita Cupcakes.
Almost important as the cocktail itself is what you rim it with. Obviously we love salt but you could spike that with a bit of chile powder, or use Tajín! You could even do a dusting of for a bit of sweetness.
