Ingredients

  • FOR RED LAYER
  • 3 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/2 ounce El Mayor Blanco Tequila 1 shot
  • 1 ounce cointreau
  • 2 ounce grenadine
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • FOR BLUE LAYER
  • 3 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 1/2 ounce El Mayor Blanco Tequila 1 shot
  • 1 ounce cointreau
  • 2 oz. blue curaçao
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • FOR WHITE LAYER
  • 3 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 1/2 ounce El Mayor Blanco Tequila 1 shot
  • 1 ounce cointreau
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey

Instructions

  • Make each layer of margarita separately by blending all ingredients in a high powered blender (rinsing in between layers). After making each layer, pour into glasses. This will create the red white and blue separated layers.
  • Garnish with fresh fruit and Enjoy!

Notes

  • Use chilled ingredients. Warm - or even room temp - ingredients will melt your ice quicker, and you’ll need to add more ice to get that nice, thick, slushy consistency. This will dilute the flavor. So chill your other ingredients where possible.
  • Adjust these Margarita Slushies to your tastes. You may want more lime or a it less alcohol etc. depending on you and your guests preferences. Have a taste of ech layer as you blend it, so you can adjust accordingly for the perfect frozen cocktail!
  • You can adjust the quantity. This recipe serves two but you can multiply the ingredient amounts to serve a bigger crowd.
  • Used small or crushed ice. Make your blender's job a bit easier by making your frozen drink with crushed or cracked ice instead of whole cubes. This is especially useful if you have an older, less powerful blender.
  • Don't overblend. If you leave the blender running for too long you'll end up with a drink that is too thin and runny.
  • Blend and serve! These cocktails are best served right away, you can prep your glasses ahead of time.
