At only 10 1/2 ounces per serving you might think this drink a bit wee. But I assure you, one of these packs a wallop, and two will get you speaking in haiku. This delicious raspberry margarita, along with an incredible southwestern cuisine, is making this small chain a big success story.

Get This

  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 ounces Montezuma gold tequila
  • 2 1/2 ounces triple sec liqueur

    • Instructions

      1. Combine the sugar with warm water in a pitcher and stir or shake until the sugar is dissolved. Add the lime juice, lemon juice, tequila, and triple sec and put the pitcher in the freezer for several hours, until the drink is frozen. (This is all you need if you want to clone the plain version of the margarita served at the restaurant, without the Chambord).

      2. When the drink is frozen, use a long spoon to mix it up so it's slushy and smooth. The alcohol in the drink will prevent it from freezing solid so that you can break it up by stirring.

      3. To make each drink, pour 1/2 ounce of Chambord into the bottom of three 10 1/2-ounce glasses—large martini glasses work well for this. Pour the frozen margarita over the liqueur and the liqueur will swirl itself into the frozen margarita.

      4. Add a straw to each drink plus a lime wedge and serve.

      Makes three 10.5-ounce drinks.

I lived in Arizona for years and loved getting these on a hot summer evening. Now living in the midwest I used this recipe and it is amazing! Other west coast transplants have tried and agreed it is dead on! Great job on this one!

This is THE best margarita recipe because you don't need a blender. You can make them ahead for a party, or just keep them in your freezer to just have one at a time. LOVE them!
