The Perfect Blended Margarita


This blended margarita recipe proves you don't need to purchase a pre-made margarita mix to make a perfect margarita. I prefer mine straight up, but you can add salt to the rim if you like.

Prep Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
5 mins


  • 3 cups ice cubes, divided

  • 1 ¼ cups fresh lime juice

  • 1 cup triple sec or other orange liqueur

  • 1 cup silver tequila

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Combine 2 cups ice cubes, lime juice, triple sec, tequila, and lemon juice in a blender; blend margarita until smooth.

  2. Place remaining 1 cup ice cubes in a cocktail shaker; pour in desired amount of margarita. Cover and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into a chilled glass.
