Grape Margarita Slush

A variation on a summertime favorite, this is equally good without the tequila and Triple Sec.

Cooking Light JUNE 2002

  • Yield: 10 cups (serving size: 1 cup)


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 large limes)
  • 1/3 cup Triple Sec
  • 3 cups seedless green grapes
  • 7 cups ice cubes


Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Pour into a freezer-safe container; cool completely. Add tequila, juice, and Triple Sec to sugar mixture; stir to combine. Cover and freeze overnight. Place grapes in a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; freeze overnight.

Place half of tequila mixture, 1 1/2 cups grapes, and 3 1/2 cups ice in a blender; process until desired consistency. Repeat with remaining tequila mixture, grapes, and ice.
