When the sun is shining, the birds are singing and summer humidity is out in full force, nothing—and I mean nothing—tastes as refreshing as a frozen margarita. I know, I know—alcohol isn’t technically hydrating. But a chilly margarita hits the spot unlike any other. I mean, it’s basically a fruit-filled alcoholic smoothie. Who can argue with that?
Frozen margarita recipes are among the most abundant around. And what’s nice about that isn’t just that it makes whipping up a delicious frozen margarita super easy, but that it makes whipping up different kinds of delicious frozen margaritas super easy. Lime, ice and simple syrup may be an unstoppable combo, but sometimes your taste buds crave something a little different. Maybe they want a classic margarita with a dash of guava, or a strawberry-filled spin on the regular lime-filled cocktail. Maybe they want pineapple, or mango, or—gasp—jalapeno. And really, who are you to deny them the transcendent sensory experience of a flavored frozen marg? (Give your taste buds what they want!)
Below, you’ll find enough frozen margarita recipes to last an entire summer—and maybe a little beyond that, too. Because we all know the temperatures stay warm well into September (and if we’re being honest, that hot hot heat trickles into October, too). The more margs, the merrier.
