Frozen Lime Margarita

Frozen Margarita

The Super Bowl was this past weekend, and we had major celebrations around our house! With just the four of us, there was plenty of food to go around (and some that’s still in our fridge), and we all got pumped (for our different reasons) to cheer on the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons lost of course, in the most devastating of ways, but the adults had these delicious margaritas to calm our woes.

Let me talk to you for a minute about margaritas. Over the years, and we don’t remember how, they’ve kind of become mine and Brent’s drink. So I’ve made quite a few of them over the years, but have never really been able to get that “slushy” consistency. Either I’ve been scared the blocks of ice were going to chip the blade of my blender, or they just never really broke down at all. Other times I just gave up altogether and simply poured the contents over ice. But I no longer have to live that way anymore.

The trick, my friends, is to crush the ice before you blend it. And how do you crush ice if you don’t have an industrial ice crusher in your kitchen? In the funnest of ways. You put it in a large resealable bag, twist the air out of it, and then smash it onto your floor or counter. I mean smash it. Quite hard, but not so hard that it breaks the bag, as I did before ice went flying all over my kitchen. But boy, it sure was fun.

  • 2 cups crushed ice Free
  • 2 ounces tequila $2.50
  • 1 ounce Triple Sec $1.25
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime $0.33
  • 1 teaspoon sugar $0.01
  • Lime slices, for garnish $0.10

Total cost $4.19
Cost per serving $2.10

1.) Place all ingredients, except for the lime slices, into a blender. Pulse until the ice is fully broken up, all ingredients have been incorporated, and the mix is a slushy consistency. Pour into margarita glasses and garnish with a slice of lime.
