Who doesn’t love a frosty cocktail when the weather heats up – we are here to save the day with some margarita recipes you’re going to love. The margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec (such as Cointreau) and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the glass’s rim. It is the most common tequila-based cocktail in the United States. The drink is served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up).
Whip up a batch for an evening on the patio, and we promise that the heat will be a lot more bearable. Whether you’re making drinks for one or a crowd, these margarita recipes are sure to please. There’s really nothing like an ice-cold margarita on a hot day. Which one will you try first?
There’s something so refreshing about a glass of limeade, which is why this is one of my favourite margarita recipes. You get the delicious lime flavour you love so much, but with a bit more tartness. This is a great choice for any hot day.
It’s summertime, which means watermelons are everywhere at super low prices. Slice one up, but make sure you keep a few pieces out for this yummy and refreshing margarita. It’s hard to slow down, but try not to drink too many.
Can’t decide between a beer and a margarita? Why not have both? This recipe combines the great flavours of both drinks in one glass. You’re going to love it and so are each of your guests.
Chipotle Grapefruit Margarita
This margarita is unlike anything you’ve ever had. The combination of flavours is really unique, but it’s still refreshing and delicious. This is definitely the recipe to try if you’re trying to impress someone.
Frozen Blackberry Sangria Margarita Swirl
This cool layered blackberry margarita has the added flavour of sangria. Freezing the different bases separately sets the stage to create this gorgeous looking drink that’s equally tasty.
The French get a lot of things right, and this margarita is no exception. The ingredients combine to create something so delicious you won’t be able to believe it.
Italian Amaretto Margaritas
Umm, yum, right? You can’t go wrong with this margarita. It has all the delicious flavour you crave, but it’s different from any other margarita you’ve ever had.
Coconut Creamsicle Margaritas
These margaritas are slightly orange-flavoured with a hint of coconut water and canned coconut milk – this is one of the only instances where we will tell you that light coconut milk is better. You don’t need the coconut tequila, but you need the coconut tequila since we don’t like to lie to you. Just in your life period.
Fresh Pineapple Margaritas
The pineapple’s super sweetness was absolutely perfect with the tart lime margaritas, and the good-quality tequila definitely made a difference.
The Mojitarita cocktail is a cross between the Mojito and the Margarita. It blends mint and lime with silver tequila instead of rum, and the taste is incredibly refreshing – perfect for a hot summer’s day. The tequila adds a surprising flavour kick compared to rum.
