I love frozen margaritas. To me it’s like an adult slushy and there’s nothing that cools me off faster on a 110F Texas afternoon than sitting and sipping this frozen honeydew margarita. They are sweet without being too sweet and have that lush melon flavor that just goes with summer.
For this recipe you’ll need: honeydew, silver tequila, limes, Triple Sec, Midori, sugar, salt or sugar crystals for the rim of the glass

I am not much of a plain margarita fan but add some frozen fruit to it, blend it up until it’s slushy and smooth, and add it to a chilled glass and I am happy. Ecstatic. Overjoyed.
I am not sophisticated enough for scotch on the rocks on a regular basis, martinis tend to bore me. Nope, I am not grown up enough to drink grown up cocktails — I want mine to taste like some variation of KoolAid.
And that’s where this drink comes in.
I have a summer addiction to the watermelon margaritas at On the Border. I would stop in there every, single day if I could afford it and if I could actually get work done while in a margarita haze. Since I can’t I try to keep it to a couple of times during the summer and then make them at home on the weekends. When I came up with the bright idea of a honeydew margarita I honestly had no idea that it was a “thing”. I just wanted to do a variation on the watermelon kind that I loved already.
Since I like my margaritas frozen I pop the fruit in the freezer an hour or so before I am ready to make my drink. That way it is all frozen and slushy without being watered down by ice. It’s imperative that you start with a very ripe, flavorful melon BUT if your honeydew turns out to be a little on the bland side a little extra sugar and Midori go a long way. 😉

You’ll need a good blender if you’re going to make frozen drinks. I like this reverse crush blender by Oster. Margarita glasses aren’t necessary but they sure are pretty! These heavy Yucatan Margarita Glasses by Libby are sturdy and perfect for chilling before filling!
