Snow-ga-rita Tips: 

  • Using chilled ingredients will keep the snow frozen longer, making your drink nice and slushy while you sip away to your happy place.  
  • If snow is unavailable, multiply the recipe by 4 and add 2 cups of ice. Blend on high until completely smooth with no ice chunks left. 


Quick & Simple Version — 

  • 1/4 cup margarita mix
  • 1/4 cup tequila 
  • 1/3 cup snow 

Pour the chilled margarita mix and tequila in a tumbler and stir in snow. Garnish with a lime and salt on the rim if desired. Serve immediately. 


Authentic Version – 

  • 1/4 cup 100% agave tequila
  • 2 tablespoons quality orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed limejuice
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar or sugar  
  • 1/3 cup snow

Pour the chilled liqueur and limejuice together, then briskly whisk in the agave nectar until dissolved. Stir in the chilled tequila and snow. Garnish with a lime and salt on the rim if desired. Serve immediately.

    I have been doing this for years, it makes any type of frozen drink amazing. You can’t get this type of slush with a regular blender and ice.
