6 Refreshing Frozen Margaritas

By

Frozen Margaritas don’t have the best reputation. They’re often associated with syrupy concoctions dispensed from giant machines at restaurants with 32-inch-tall menus and servers who are all dressed like they’re in a cult that worships the happy hour. But in reality, a well made frozen Margarita is one of the best treats you can give yourself in the summertime. Whether you want a classic version or one dressed up with seasonal produce, there is a slushy tequila cocktail for every taste.
