Enjoy your fresh made frozen margarita!

Frozen margaritas are a great, refreshing cocktail to enjoy during the hotter summer months. This version is great because all the ingredients are fresh and most tend to be on hand.

What really makes this margarita special is the addition of salt into the blender with all the other ingredients instead of just on the rim. This is also a great option because the taste of salt can be added without needing to be on the rim for those who don’t like a salt rimmed margarita.

If you have some sort of specialty salt, this cocktail would be the perfect option to add a dash to. I love to add this Citrus Ginger Sea Salt from Farm Candy into these margaritas to make them extra special.

I hope this inspires you to whip up your own fresh, homemade margarita without mixer or maybe another twist on a classic cocktail!
