How to make frozen margaritas

To make frozen margaritas: use frozen (unthawed) strawberries and add a couple cups of crushed ice to the mixture in your blender.

TIP: Since the ice will dilute the frozen margaritas a bit, I recommend adding an extra splash of alcohol. Taste it as you prepare it and adjust accordingly.

Recipe tips

  • The great thing about making your own cocktails is that you can adjust them to suit your tastes. If you want it stronger, add more alcohol. Sweeter? Add more strawberry syrup or orange juice. Use my recipe as a guide to craft your perfect Strawberry Margarita.
  • Don’t forget to add some sugar or salt to the rim of your glass. I love using a mix of both (sweet + salty together is the BEST). Here’s how to do it: Place equal parts sugar and coarse salt on a plate. Run a lime or orange wedge around the rim of an empty glass to moisten it, and then gently twist it in the sugar/salt.
  • I love the color of blood oranges in this cocktail, but you can absolutely use regular oranges and it will taste just as good.
  • This recipe is written to make 4-5 cocktails. You can easily adjust the quantity up or down using the slider in the recipe card.

  • ▢4 cups chopped strawberries*
  • ▢⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ▢1 cup silver tequila
  • ▢⅓ cup Grand Marnier or Cointreau
  • ▢½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice, I’ve used regular oranges and blood oranges
  • ▢1 tablespoon lime juice, optional


On the rocks:

  • Combine strawberries, sugar, and a couple tablespoons of water in a blender and blend until completely smooth. Add a little bit more water, if necessary, to get it smooth (this will depend on how juicy your strawberries are).
  • Place a fine mesh sieve over a large glass measuring cup and pour the mixture through. Lightly press and stir the mixture through the sieve. Discard the solids. You should have around 1-½ cups of strawberry puree; you might not need all of it.
  • Add tequila, Grand Marnier, orange juice, lime juice, and 1 cup strawberry puree to the blender (no need to clean it out) and blend until combined. Taste and adjust ingredients as necessary. Serve in glasses filled with crushed ice.


  • Combine all ingredients along with approximately 2 cups of crushed ice in a blender. Process until smooth. Adjust the thickness by adding more ice. You might need a little bit more alcohol, since the ice will dilute it a bit. Serve immediately.


*If preparing your margarita on the rocks, use fresh strawberries or thawed frozen strawberries. If using frozen strawberries, I recommend measuring them before thawing.

*If preparing frozen margaritas, use frozen strawberries (still frozen).

Adjust all ingredients to suit your taste. This makes a mildly sweet margarita. If you want it stronger, increase the tequila or orange liqueur. If you want it sweeter, increase the syrup and/or orange juice.

To coat the rim of your glass in sugar or coarse salt: Rub the rim of the glass with a lime wedge or a little water. Place salt or sugar on a plate and dip/twist the rim of the glass into the salt or sugar.


Fresh Strawberry Margarita -- all you need are 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make these fresh and naturally-sweetened drinks!

Hey, hey, it’s my birthday! And I made margaritas to celebrate!

Actually, I had all intentions of making a cake, but it’s Cinco de Mayo week here on the blog. (The best holiday ever to coincide with my birthday each year!)  And we all know that chips and salsa and margs are about my favorite thing to eat on the planet. So hey, after 30 years of cakes, why not a margarita to celebrate the big 3-1?

Frozen Sangria

I have to say, this recipe is one of my all-time favorites too. Strawberry margaritas are a classic! But instead of going the usual frozen strawberries route, I decided to make use of the beautiful ripe strawberries that are in abundance right now and make a fresh strawberry margarita version. It is sweetened with honey (or agave). It calls for just 5 simple ingredients. It takes less than 5 minutes to whip up in a blender. It can be served on the rocks or frozen.

And goodness, it is delicious.

If you happen to be reading this at a time of year when strawberries aren’t in season, or if you absolutely can’t get your paws on a pound of fresh berries, you are more than welcome to use frozen berries. You can either blend them up frozen, or let them thaw and get closer to the effect of a fresh strawberry margarita on the rocks. But if you can find some fresh strawberries, I completely recommend using them! I swear you can taste the difference of those sweet fresh berries.

And I actually love having a strawberry drink that — for once — isn’t frozen.

So grab 5 ingredients and find 5 minutes and make a batch with me! Here’s how:

Well, actually there are hardly any instructions. Just dump all 5 ingredients — strawberries, tequila, orange liqueur, honey (or desired sweetener), and some fresh lime juice in a blender.

Then blend until smooth. If you’re using fresh berries, you’ll probably have a nice thick foam that develops on top after this sits for a few minutes. Feel free to skim it off if you don’t want super foamy margaritas.

Then either pour them over ice to serve on the rocks. Or add some ice to your blender and make frozen margaritas. And then enjoy!

Strawberry Margarita

Strawberry Margarita cocktail

The classic Margarita, a widely beloved cocktail made by combining tequila, fresh lime juice, and triple sec or agave nectar as the drinker prefers, is one of the world’s most popular drinks for good reason. But sometimes you want something even fruitier and bursting with summer flavor, something easier to gulp down beside (or in) a pool.

What you want in those times is a frozen Strawberry Margarita.

It takes the classic Margarita’s bright flavors and adds a super-fruity pop, turning an already festive drink into a crowd-pleaser that announces the party has started.

This drink couldn’t be easier to whip up: Just throw everything into a blender with ice and give it a spin until it’s slushy. Multiply the ingredients by the number of drinkers to whip up a large crowd-pleasing batch all at once. 

Of course, you can certainly take the more elegant option of muddling the strawberries in a shaker, then adding everything else plus ice, and serving it in a rocks glass over fresh ice, mimicking the proper and correct way to enjoy the classic, non-strawberry version of the drink. But if you’re craving a Strawberry Margarita, the odds are that you’re in the mood for something a little less serious and a little more fun. Go ahead and break out your blender for this one. 


  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • Garnish: 1 whole fresh strawberry


  1. Add the tequila, triple sec, strawberries, lime juice and agave nectar into a blender with a cup of ice and blend until a smooth, slushy texture is achieved.
  2. Pour into a Margarita or cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with a fresh strawberry.
