With warmer weather upon us, it’s time for cool and refreshing drinks.
Actually I don’t need warm weather to enjoy margaritas, but it helps them go down extra easily.
The margaritas taste like a tropical vacation. They’re fruity and sweet but not too sweet, and they pack a punch.
There’s no margarita mix, no added refined (white) sugar, and the sweetness comes naturally from the fruit and agave.
I use minimal ice because I use frozen fruit. There’s a time for fresh fruit but in blended drinks is not one of them. Frozen fruit is cheaper, readily available, there’s no work involved in cleaning it, and it naturally cools the drink down. If you happen to have fresh of course use it, but I save my fresh for eating.
I love Patron Silver and it’s my go-to tequila but use your favorite.
One is never enough which is why the recipe makes two hearty drinks. A definite must for Cinco de Mayo.
