Read on to find out how to make margaritas in a blender or on the rocks, right at home. 

What Is a Blended Margarita? 

A blended margarita, also known as a frozen margarita, is a slushy, frozen cocktail made by blending all the ingredients of a classic margarita in a blender with ice.  

Why Blend a Margarita?

Drinking a margarita poured over ice–on the rocks–is a completely different experience, and sometimes is not as refreshing as sipping one frozen, especially in hot weather. If you have ever wondered what makes frozen margaritas better, here are a few reasons why you should consider blending them:

More Texture 

Frozen margaritas are cocktails of icy goodness–when you blend your margarita, the blender creates tiny beads of ice that give you a nice cool drink but will also add a bit of texture that many drinks lack. 

Perfect for Summer

A margarita on the rocks has its share of ice, but that chill is not as evenly distributed as that of a frozen margarita. Your blender shaves the ice while mixing it into the rest of the drink, making sure every sip you take is as cold as possible. 

Ice Is a Key Ingredient 

If you’ve had a frozen margarita, you might feel like something is missing if you drink a margarita on the rocks. Having blended ice in a margarita is just as important as the tequila or lime juice for many margarita-goers, as it meshes harmoniously with the rest of the drink. 

Fun to Garnish 

If you like to garnish your drinks with fruit wedges or tiny umbrellas, frozen margaritas are perfect for you. Because it is a thicker cocktail, you can drop in some lime wedges or pineapple chunks to make beautiful party cocktails. 

Easy to Make 

Instead of shaking all your ingredients for minutes, exhausting yourself while hosting a party, you can simply let the blender do all the work to give you perfect, smooth margaritas each time.
