Frozen Margarita

Prep time 10 mins
Yield Makes 1 serving
Make any size batch of this recipe by simply multiplying the ingredient measurements by the desired number of servings. For a sweeter drink, use 1/2 cup powdered sugar instead of 1/3 cup.

Ingredients

  • Fresh lime wedge (optional)
  • Margarita salt (optional)
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice*
  • 3 tablespoons orange liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar

How to Make It

  1. Rub rim of a chilled margarita glass with lime wedge, and dip rim in salt to coat, if desired.

  2. Combine lime juice, liqueur, tequila, and powdered sugar in a small pitcher or measuring cup; stir until powdered sugar is dissolved. Pour into a zip-top plastic freezer bag. Seal and freeze 8 hours. Let stand 5 minutes at room temperature before serving. Pour into prepared glass.

  3. *1/3 cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate may be substituted for fresh lime juice. Omit powdered sugar, and proceed with recipe as directed.

  4. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Cointreau for orange liqueur and Jose Cuervo Especial for tequila.
