Frozen Margarita Train

I’m on a frozen margarita train, and it doesn’t look like I’m getting off for a while. Not that I’m drinking excessively, but on a hot summer day these are so refreshing! Not to mention the bounty of ripe summer fruit. This Berry Minty Margarita is extra refreshing with fresh mint leaves and seasonal berries.

Blender

The only equipment needed for this recipe is a blender. I use a Vitamix to get the perfect consistency for frozen drinks. I had a Ninja blender for a long time, which worked great too. Any blender should do the trick, though blending times may vary.

Frozen Berries

Berries

Berries are a delicious seasonal fruit. They are everywhere and constantly on sale, so I buy lots of them. In this recipe I used strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Any combination of berries, or even just one berry would be great! I froze some of my fresh berries so they wouldn’t go bad and used them in this recipe. Using frozen berries from the store is a great idea too, especially when they are out of season. Frozen berries are picked at their peak of ripeness and frozen quickly, so they still have tons of nutrients!

Sparkling Water

I’m on a sparkling water kick, so I always have it around. I usually go for the lime flavor, but they have tons of different flavors out there. AHA has a watermelon-lime flavor which I use in my watermelon margaritas. For this recipe I used Bubly lime flavored, but feel free to try the different ones and see what you like. Other great brands are Spindrift and Waterloo, but sometimes Brad just gets whatever he sees at the store. Or on sale. This girl is trying to save money right now, ha!

Sugar Mint Rim

This is the part of the berry minty margarita that I get SUPER excited about. Instead of a regular sugar-coated rim on the margarita, I mixed the sugar with fresh chopped mint! It’s so pretty, and it helps bring out the flavor of the mint in the drink. Put the sugar-mint mixture in a dish just big enough for your glass to fit in. Then, use a lime wedge to get the rim wet and sticky, and dip it in the sugar mixture. These stemless wine glasses I use are perfect for any cocktail, and they fit perfectly in my 2-cup Pyrex bowls.
