Have you ever read a blog post that starts with “so many of you have asked that I finally decided to share…”?
Well, this is not one of those.
I have, however, had at least three people ask for my frozen margarita recipe! And since I can’t say that a boatload of you have asked about my haircare routine, or my weight loss tips (I die), or my mechanical skills, the margarita recipe wins by default!
First of all, please know, I’m not much of a partaker. I’ve been known to fall asleep after less than half a glass of wine, (I believe the technical term is “lightweight”), but I do enjoy myself a good frozen margarita every now and again.
The base of my recipe is a 12 oz. can of frozen limeade concentrate, so all you purists out there should probably look away at this point. The other key is quality ingredients. I always use Silver Patron tequila and Cointreau (no substitutes).
The key to the best consistency? My tried and true Vitamix blender which gives the smoothest, dreamiest results.
Here’s what’cha do-
Hobnob Kitchen Frozen Margaritas
(Serves around 8)
1 12 oz. can frozen limeade (I use Minute Maid brand)
1 cup Silver Patron
1/4 c. Cointreau
juice of one orange
juice of 2 limes
1 cup cold water (sometimes I substitute same amount sparkling lime water)
about 4 cups of crushed ice (if you use Sonic ice you will thank me!)
Place everything in a great blender and blend, beginning on low and slowly increasing in speed until ice is all finely crushed and the consistency of a slush. You can add more ice or a teensy bit more water if needed to acheive the best results.
Garnish with lime slice.
