Ingredients in Pineapple Mango Margaritas:

  • Frozen mango chunks
  • Frozen pineapple chunks
  • Clementine or orange juice
  • Simple syrup
  • Silver tequila
  • Ice

I prefer to use frozen fruit when making these pineapple mango margaritas, because it allows you to use less ice and end up with a very cold, frothy drink. You can buy frozen fruit from the grocery store, or chop it and freeze it in advance. Alternately, you can use fresh fruit and add a lot more ice to reach your desired consistency.

To Make Raspberry Sauce, You Will Need:

  • Fresh raspberries
  • White sugar
  • Lemon juice

I made a fresh homemade raspberry sauce here because it really takes the drink to the next level. If that’s feeling like too much work though, skip it and use a good raspberry jam instead! It will still be insanely delicious.

All of that said – don’t fear the sauce! I think cocktails with homemade ingredients are just that much better, and certainly if you’re entertaining it’s worth the extra effort to really wow your friends.

The rest of the ingredients come pre-chopped from the freezer aisle in the grocery store because it’s all about the balance, friends. Oh! And you’ll notice above that there’s a video for this one. We all know how much I love my face appearing on the internet (aka not at all,) so this was a big step for me, but a lot of fun to try something new.

Make yourself a pitcher of these mango margaritas! Your tastebuds will thank you.

How to Make Non Alcoholic Margaritas:

This frozen cocktail recipe is very easy to make non alcoholic! In this case, simply skip the tequila when adding all of the ingredients to the blender. You’ll then have a delicious non alcoholic margarita recipe perfect for kiddos, expectant mommas or the non drinkers in the crowd. So easy!

Which Tequila is Best for Margaritas?

This answer is totally subjective, but here’s my general rule of thumb. For classic margaritas, which are less sweet and generally served on the rocks, I suggest the best tequila your budget allows. I always prefer a silver tequila for my margaritas.

For frozen margaritas, which tend to be sweeter, I feel like a more middle of the road tequila is totally passable as the sweetness of the drink will cover a magnitude of sins.

Can Margaritas Be Made with Vodka?

I get this question a lot, because many people really don’t like tequila! Or maybe you just don’t have any on hand at home. I get it, I really do. In this case – yes! This frozen margarita recipe would be delicious using vodka.
