Frozen Margarita Slushy ready for Cinco De Mayo celebrations! With most recipes calling for simple syrup or artificial limeade, this one doesn’t need any of that. Pure, fresh ingredients resembling the Classic Margarita, only in an icy slushy!
To be completely honest, I’m not a fan of tequila — on its own that is. I am a fan of the ritual tequila shots, sucking on lemon wedges and licking salt. Unfortunately, I never believed in just one shot. Or two. Ah, the memories. Tequila makes you believe you’re JLO, dancing on podiums in packed clubs or bars, only to find out you looked more like Elaine from Seinfeld. If you’ve seen Seinfeld, you know exact what I’m talking about.
My next favourite Tequila drink is a margarita. But somehow, a slushy makes it even better. More soothing. More refreshing. Quenches your thirst, and dangerously feels like drinking an icy lemonade. The best part is a slushy takes longer to drink than a Margarita in liquid form. More time to enjoy the tart, boozy flavours of Margaritas with the classic rim of salt.
There’s a certain elegance to these Margarita Slushies. You’ll feel like a bartender blending these up in less than 5 minutes.
