Fruit Blends

Mango margaritas, anyone? Give your margarita a fruity twist by trying one of these blends:

  • Strawberry-Banana: Blend one 16-oz. package of frozen unsweetened whole strawberries and 1 medium banana until smooth; if desired, strain to remove seeds.
  • Mango: Blend 3 cups of sliced mangoes until smooth.
  • Blackberry: Blend one 16-oz. package of frozen unsweetened blackberries until smooth; if desired, strain to remove seeds.

Boozy Mix-Ins

At your next party, make margaritas even more special by trying one of these boozy mix-ins in addition to tequila:

  • Blackberry-flavor brandy
  • Coconut-flavor rum
  • Sparkling wine

For the Rim

You don't have to stick to just salt for the rim. Give your margarita some heat by using chili powder, or satisfy your sweet tooth by using sugar. Impress your guests by providing these rimmers as options:

  • Superfine granulated sugar or powdered sugar
  • Coarse salt or cocktail salt
  • Lime, lemon, or orange zest
  • Chili powder

Garnishes

No margarita is complete without a pretty fruit garnish! But you don't have to stick to classic lime. Instead, give some of these fruits a try:

  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Sliced peaches
  • Lime, lemon, and/or orange wedges or wheels
