When it comes to team frozen margarita versus team rocks margarita, we pledge our allegiance to the margarita on the rocks flag, which is why this is the only frozen margarita on the site. We don't have anything against a frozen margarita, it's just they're too often icy or slushy or too sweet or flavorless. But that all changes when you make it using frozen fruit, which is why the only frozen margarita on the site is this one. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 100% agave silver tequila
  • 1/2 jalapeño

    halved for tequila

  • 3 cups frozen mango pieces
  • 2 cups cubed fresh papaya
  • 1/2 cup jalapeño-infused tequila
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau or other orange liqueur
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • thinly sliced jalapeño chile

    for garnish

Instructions

For the infused tequila: Place the jalapeno in the tequila and let soak for at least 30 minutes. Depending on the heat level you like, you can either leave the jalapeno in the tequila or strain it off and discard it.

For the margarita: Combine all remaining ingredients except a few slices of the jalapeno in the food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour into serving glasses, garnish with jalapeno and serve.
