Fruity Frozen Cocktails

Try ice cold frozen margaritas using fresh fruit for summer nights. They're so delicious, so be careful not to drink too many!

Ingredients

Fruits of your choice (bananas, grapefruit, oranges, kiwi etc.)
about 1 handful
Ice
5 to 6 cubes
Tequila
to taste
Lime, yuzu etc. (optional)
to taste
Soda water (optional)
to taste
Serving suggestions:
Kiwis
2
Grapefruit
1 small
Banana
1

Steps

1. Peel the fruit, cut into bite sized pieces, and freeze. If you have frozen fruit in the freezer like this, you can enjoy frozen margaritas at home any time you like. You don't have to remove the membranes from citrus fruit.
2. When you want to have a frozen margarita, put the frozen fruit, ice cubes and tequila in a Magic Bullet or a blender and just blend.
3. Add soda water to taste and mix lightly to finish.
4. Moisten the edge of the glass slightly and twist it around in salt to coat. Pour the cocktail mix in the glass and serve.
5. You can add lime to taste. Lemon juice or yuzu juice are delicious too.
6. The top photo is a kiwi margarita. Citrus fruit like pink grapefruit and oranges are delicious, too.
7. Bananas were surprisingly tasty. You can add milk instead of soda water to make it milkshake-like. Bananas are cheap and easy to peel.
8. Gin was tasty too, but I think tequila is more fragrant and better suited for this. You can whirl the mixture until it's very smooth or leave it slightly chunky.
9. Frozen banana + milk + Kahlua = Frozen Kahlua milk. Sooo creamy!
10. Shiso juice and ice makes a nice frozen margarita, too.

Story Behind this Recipe

I once ordered fresh fruit frozen margaritas at a Mexican restaurant. They were so so delicious, so I wanted to recreate them at home!
