Created April 9, 2021
This Cinco de Mayo, Betty has your back with how to make a homemade frozen margarita; no blender required! With summer cookouts getting closer each day, this is a great way to put your bartending skills to the test. If you’re looking to save a little time, make this recipe the day before!


  • 2 cans (10 oz.) frozen margarita concentrate
  • 1 cup tequila
  • ⅓ cup fresh lime juice (2 to 3 medium limes)
  • 1 medium lime, cut into 6 slices
  • Margarita salt for glass rims, if desired
  • 1 can (12 oz.) lemon-lime carbonated beverage


  1. In a medium bowl, combine margarita concentrate, tequila and lime juice; mix well. Pour mixture into 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish. Freeze at least 5 hours or until set.
  2. To serve, run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass; dip in margarita salt. For each drink, spoon 2/3 cup frozen mixture into a glass; pour 1/4 cup carbonated beverage over the top. Garnish with lime wedges.

Expert Tips

  • Make this refreshing drink several days ahead. Keep it covered in the freezer and add the lemon-lime carbonated beverage just before serving.
  • Look for flavored, colored salts in the beverage aisle of the grocery store. Garnish with lime slices, if desired.
