Jalapeño Margarita slushies

Margaritas are by far, my favorite cocktail. The sharp bite of lime with tequila is a match made in Heaven and I’ve never met a Margarita I don’t like. And even though a classic Margarita is 100% my jam, these spicy jalapeño Margarita slushies have become my new fav. Not only are they easy to make (and SO great for a crowd), the frosty slush is just perfect on hot days. Cheers!

How to make Margarita slushies

Make a simple syrup by combining equal parts water and sugar with lime juice, lime zest, fresh orange juice and a few slices fresh jalapeño. Allow to cook in a small saucepan until the sugar has dissolved and the the syrup is infused then remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. Strain out the zest and jalapeños. Combine the syrup with fresh lime juice, tequila, Triple Sec/Cointreau and lots of ice in a strong blender and blend until the mixture is the consistency of a slushy.

Can you make margarita slushies ahead?

The infused syrup can be made well in advance but the margarita itself will be better blended right before serving.

How to make a virgin Margarita?

You can easily leave the alcohol out of this recipe to make virgin margaritas. Simply blend the syrup with lime juice and ice.
