Frozen Margarita Recipe
My Grandpa Jim makes the best frozen margaritas. They are a family tradition whenever my grandma and grandpa host a BBQ or dinner at their house. Before we were old enough to have a real margarita, Grandpa would make us a non alcoholic version with a splash of grenadine!
How to Make a Frozen Margarita
- Start with a good quality blender. I used my Blendtec blender for these frozen margaritas. It makes the ice so pillowy and soft!
- Combine triple sec, tequila, Rosa’s Sweetened Lime Juice and ice in a blender and blend well.
- If you want to serve with a salted rim, use fresh limes to coat the rim of the glass, then dip rim of glass onto a small plate with coarse salt.
- Blend in small batches to keep margaritas from melting.
- 4 oz Triple Sec
- 4 oz Tequila Jose Cuervo recommended
- 3-4 oz Rosa's Sweetened Lime Juice
- 4 cups ice
- Fresh Limes cut into wedges
- Coarse Salt
In a blender, combine triple sec, tequila, Rosa's Lime Juice and ice. Blend well.
To serve with salted rims, rub rim of glass with fresh lime wedges and dip in coarse salt.
For a sweeter margarita, use 4 oz of Rosa's Lime Juice, for a slightly less sweet version use 3 oz.
Thank you for letting me share your recipe, Grandpa Jim! One of the reasons I love having a blog is that I can share recipes and traditions that are important to our family. Here is a picture of my Grandpa Jim Barton with one of his famous margaritas on Easter this year. ❤️
Cheers, Grandpa Jim!
