Say it with me… IT’S MARGARITA SEASON!

Only my favorite drinking season of the entire year! If you’ve been around for a while then you know I’m a margarita aficionado and I’d pretty much take a fresh marg over any other beverage. 

Seeing as Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, I knew we needed a fresh margarita variety for this epic day. These raspberry margaritas are SO easy to make! You can whip up a batch in less than five minutes, which is great if you’re having people over.

Last years frozen strawberry margaritas were one of my most popular drinks EVER, and these are just as tasty! 

They are made with real ingredients. Honestly, pre-made sugar filled margarita mixes really gross me out. I’m all about the fresh juice or nothing at all. These margs are made with simple ingredients like frozen strawberries, fresh lime juice, chambord or cointreau and your favorite tequila! 

Save this recipe for Cinco de Mayo or for you next frozen cocktail! 

Silver tequila bottle, agave, frozen raspberries, ice, lime juice, chambord and fresh raspberries.

Ingredients

  • Raspberries- Pre frozen raspberries work great, or freeze fresh ones the night before or a couples hours before making. 
  • Lime Juice– Freshly squeezed! If not, this is the only brand I recommend 
  • Silver TequilaCasamigos is my forever favorite. Espolon is also a great option. 
  • Chambord or Cointreau (raspberry or orange liquor)- use chambord for a sweeter cocktail and cointreau for more citrus flavor 
  • Agave or simple syrup– leave it out if you want less sugar content or don’t care for sweeter drinks 
  • Ice

Flavor Variations:

Swap in another fruit! You can really use any berries here, but raspberries work great if you want something extra bright in flavor. Use a blend of raspberries with peaches and mango to switch it up! 

Try a different tequila! I love using silver tequila but you could also use any of the reposado or anejo varieties as well as mezcal for something smoky!
