All You Need Are The Following Ingredients and Course Salt for the Rim of You Glass.
Rub rims of glasses with a lime wedge; place salt in a saucer and dip rims. (You may omit the salt if you do not like it.)
In a blender combine 1 can of Limeade, 1 can of good quality tequila, 1/2 can of triple sec and a can of beer. (I actually use a 1/2 can of lite beer.) Add a can of crushed ice. Blend and serve in Margarita Glasses. Garnish with a lime wedge. Enjoy!

We make a frozen margarita in the summer using fresh juiced lines, Silver Coin Tequila from Santa Fe, NM (very high quality tequila), sugar and ice. We blend it until it’s smooth and thick like a smoothy. We divide it up into serving sized ports and throw them in the freezer. We eat it with a spoon. It’s great on hot summer afternoons like margarita sorbetto.
Oooooooooh that sounds sooooooo good. I may need the exact recipe on that!
I’ll get you the proportions. It’s really easy. We made a batch to use up a bottle of Jose Cuervo Gold we had for some reason. Then we made a batch with the Silver Coin Tequila. Laurie’s mom came over and we did a blind taste test on her. She doesn’t drink, but she makes an exception for frozen margaritas. She ate a little of the batch with JQG in it, then took one taste of the batch made with SCT, pushed the JQG away and said “This is the one!”
I need to find some Silver Coin Tequila. I usually but Patron but wanted this blue bottle for my bar cart because it looks soooo cool!
Go the the SCT website and see who distributes it in your area. Costco carried it for awhile in Albuquerque — We met the owner of SCT in Costco, and talked to him for a long time. He happened to be there, saw us putting a bottle in our cart, and asked us what we thought of it. After we went on and on about how good it was, he gave us his card, told us he was the owner, and gave us a history about how he got into selling tequila. I haven’t seen SCT in Costco this year, but Total Wine and More carries it here, so if you have TW&M in your area they should have it.
We do so I shall head over there in the next week or so. I love just sipping GOOD Tequila over crushed ice in a small glass of course! 😉
The proportions for frozen margaritas:
1 cup lime juice (about 7 limes)
1 cup sugar
1 cup tequila
Add ice to make 64 oz.
Blend the lime juice, sugar and tequila together until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add ice and blend it until smooth.
That sounds fabulous! I am writing this down! Thanks!
We went from National Wine Day last Thursday to Margarita Day today….all is good!! 🙂
We are reaping the benefits of these National Days!
I saw this on the news today…I guess it is a real thing. Enjoy!
Did you see on the Today Show. They had a $7500.00 bottle of tequila and they were all drinking $1200.00 margaritas!!! WHOA!!
I smiled when I saw the title of this post. I love them, but they hit me hard – like a train wreck. So, I don’t drink them very often, matter of fact hardly at all. 🙂
They use too for me as well until I started using real good quality tequila. It does help. But I do have to make sure not to over indulge. Like everything… only in moderation. HA HA HA HA
I’ll be right over 😆
I love margarita! I, too, have to make sure not to over indulge… 🙂
Yes… you know what that song says… Tequila Makes her clothes………….. YIKES this is a PG Blog … I need to behave!
I’ll try to make it over as soon as I can 😉 make mine a mango margarita!
That sounds delish. I’ll be looking for you and Ingrid!
I bet your margaritas taste great!
Oh they do! YUM! but please remember only… Good Quality Tequila!
Where’s my invite? 😉
Gosh! I just saw this comment… YIKES! Well, if you ever come down to Phoenix let me know! I will make you a Margarita!
It’s a date!
I like National Margarita Day on February 22nd sounds like a good idea, but personally I’m just waiting for Chocolate Doughnut Day. I’m not sure when (or if) this takes place, so I’ve been practicing regularly to make sure I’m in peak condition for when it happens.
I think something weird happened to my punctuation in that last comment. I may have been a bit over-enthusiastic with the margaritas.
😎😎 its gonna be okay! Have a chocolate donut and a margarita. 😄
Feel better already. 🙂
When it happens… I will be right there !! They do have national donut day… Just sayin’.
Hey, June 3! 😀
Okay mark your calendar… And I will be sure to write a post about devouring some sinful crime filled yumminess!
Strawberry for me. Wish I was there sampling yours.

Who knew, national margarita day? I was shocked to hear about the beer….. is that your own personal taste or a special recipe that you found?
A special recipe on Pinterest. It is quite tasty!
