The Best Margarita Recipe to Cool You Off This Summer

best margarita recipe

Tequila in anything is my favorite drink, so you can bet that I will find the best margarita recipe that I can. Joel makes amazing margaritas on the rocks, but I love frozen, so I wanted to create the best frozen margarita that I could at home. Joel and I went to the beach this month and I had the idea of freezing the margarita mix that we use for frozen margaritas and it made all the difference. We put all of our ingredients into our Vitamix and bam. Delicious at home frozen margaritas.

The secret to the best margarita recipe is to freeze your margarita mix when making them frozen.

In addition, we chilled both the tequila and the triple sec to get them as cold as we could. We added about a cup of ice, but add more if you want a thicker consistency.
