Frozen Margarita

A little sugar and spice plus the salt on the rim makes these really tasty, so please enjoy responsibly! To kick up the spice even more, first blend a few slices of jalapeno with the tequila and then add in the rest of the ingredients. 


2-3 drinks

What You'll Need


For glass rim:

  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (we recommend Espelette)
  • Zest of one lime
  • Lime wedges to garnish

For drinks:

  • 4 ounces blanco tequila *Or: Sub tequila for equal parts non-alcoholic tequila
  • ½ cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces cointreau *Or: Sub cointreau with 2 ounces of fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 cups ice


Step 1

Place drinking glasses in the freezer.

Step 2

Mix together salt, sugar, and chili powder in a small bowl. Add in zest, using your fingers to crush the zest with the mixture. (This will release more lime flavor.) Set aside.

Step 3

Place all drink ingredients in the 750mL vessel. Pulse the power on and off to start to break up the ice. Then blend on low till slushy. 

Step 4

Remove glasses from the freezer. Wet the edge of the rim with a lime wedge and then dip the glass in the spiced sugar and salt mixture. 

Step 5

Pour blended drink in glass, then garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy.
