Frozen Limeade Margarita Recipe

June 8, 2014

I purchased these fun neon straws  at the grocery store and cut them down to a more stylish length.

Context: I have had visions of frozen margaritas dancing in my head ever since I realized my (okay, technically it’s my brother-in-law’s) ice cream maker can be used to make frozen beverages.

Problem: The internet (as far as I can tell) offers only a single recipe for frozen margs made in an ice cream maker. The Cuisinart recipe booklet included with our machine also provided a recipe for “Raspberry ‘Ritas,” but neither recipe fit my vision. They also had conflicting information, such as when to add the alcohol (mix with lime juice first, or wait until the last few minutes of mixing?)

Solution: Through combining recipes and some experimentation, I’ve created an easy frozen margarita recipe. Cheers!

Frozen Limeade Margaritas

Makes 3-4 servings

  • 36 oz. (4.5 cups) limeade
  • 3 oz. chilled Triple Sec
  • 6 oz. chilled tequila
  • optional: lime wedge for garnish

Turn on the ice cream maker and pour in the limeade. Allow the limeade to begin to form a slush consistancy (approximately 15 minutes). Add the Triple Sec and tequila. The mixure may partially liquify again. Leave it mixing in the ice cream maker until it has reached the slush consistancy again (approximately 10 minutes). Pour into glasses and garnish with a lime wedge. Store in the freezer and defrost 15 minutes before serving.

NOTE: This recipe can be made without an ice cream maker. Mix the limeade, Triple Sec, and tequila and freeze for 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally. margarita ingredients
