When summer rolls around every year, all I want to do is lay by the pool sipping on frozen margaritas. Imagine how good it feels to drink this Frozen Cherry Limeade Margarita to refresh and rehydrate from the hot sun!
I love Homemade Limeade for an alcohol-free way to cool off, but you can’t beat this frozen concoction when it’s just the adults by the pool.(Did you pick up on that Jimmy Buffett reference?)

Frozen Cherry Limeade Margarita
As a kid, my very favorite drink in the world was a cherry limeade from Sonic. That flavor always reminds me of summertime, no matter what time of year it is.
I finally made my own Homemade Cherry Limeade recipe (there’s a regular version and a cocktail version), but that just wasn’t enough.
I had to take it up a notch and create this amazing Cherry Limeade Margarita recipe for the ultimate summer happy hour. And better yet, it’s a FROZEN cherry limeade margarita, because icy drinks are a necessity on pool days.
I’ve made a lot of drinks (and specifically, a lot of margaritas) on my blog, but these are some of the tastiest and easiest. They’re tart and sweet at the same time– a cherry-flavored drink to cherish.

- Quick and easy: You only need three ingredients; put everything in a blender, add ice water, and you’re set!
How to Make Frozen Cherry Limeade Margaritas
One of the best things about this Frozen Cherry Limeade Margarita recipe is how easy and quick it is to make. You can’t go wrong with a cocktail that only requires three ingredients! All you need is limeade concentrate, tart cherry juice, and tequila (plus lots of ice).
- Pour the limeade concentrate, water, cherry juice, and tequila into a blender, then fill it up with ice.
- Blend on high until the ice crushes and smooths out to the consistency you prefer.
- Salt the rims of your glasses, pour the margaritas, and top off with cherries and lime slices.
What’s Tart Cherry Juice?
Tart cherries aren’t what you see in the produce section of your local grocery store. Farmers used to call them sour cherries because they are, well, sour.
It turns out that tart cherries are something of a superfood with their antioxidant properties, so you could maybe even push the idea and call these margaritas a healthy tonic. Or not!
If you can’t find tart cherry juice, you can use grenadine syrup instead.
What’s the Best Consistency for a Frozen Margarita?
There are two schools of thoughts on frozen margaritas. Some folks like them with crunchy with chunks of ice mixed throughout, while others like them smooth and slushy. As long as you’re the person running the blender, you can make the call!
