Can you make these Frozen Strawberry Margaritas ahead of time?

Absolutely! Whip up this margarita mix a day a head of time and keep it in the freezer. The alcohol keeps the margarita from freezing completely, it stays more in that satisfying slushy form. Just give the mix a quick blitz in the blender to liven it up just before serving.

Can I add other flavors?

Strawberry on its own works beautifully, but you can totally add in other fruit too. Mango is great, as is raspberry – have fun with your favorite fruity flavors!

Do I have to use sugar in a Frozen Margarita?

No, you can leave out the sugar and use agave nectar. Sugar obviously adds a sweetness to proceedings but by no means is it essential. Without the sugar you get more of a tarty punch, which is lovely too!

Top Tips

  • For a delicious, fizzy twist, add about ¼ cup sparkling fruit juice (sparkling cranberry juice is fabulous) or clear soda to each serving of the frozen margarita mixture and stir.
  • To make your own simple syrup, just boil down 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a pan on low heat, until clear. 
  • Taste test the margarita after mixing to see if you want it sweeter before adding agave or simple syrup.
  • To rim the glasses, use a saucer and gently press and twist the rim flat into the salt mix.
