How To Make Raspberry Margarita
This frozen margarita is made from frozen raspberries, making it ideal for any season, and you don’t have to wait for spring and fresh raspberries to enjoy this lovely red cocktail!
Plus, it’s super easy to make in your blender. Mo cocktails shaker skills required!
- Frozen Raspberry
- Tequila – silver or blue tequila.
- Orange Liqueur – like Grand Marnier or Triple Sec.
- Fresh Lime Juice
- Agave Syrup or simple syrup – agave is one of my favorite choices to sweeten cocktails naturally, and its flavor is amazing.
- Fresh Mint – Mint, and raspberry are made to be together. The combination of flavors is the most amazing thing – a must-try!
- Soda Water – to thin out the drink if needed.
In a high-speed blender, add all the ingredients together, preferably placing the frozen raspberries at the bottom of the blender.
Blend on the medium-speed setting and use the tamper tool of the blender to push the frozen fruits onto the blend and help the fruit blend.
If too thick, add water or soda water, 1/4 cup at a time until it reaches the best consistency.
A classic Margarita is served in a glass with a salty rim. To decorate the glass, run a lime wedge around each margarita glass.
Then, dip the glass upside down into a shallow bowl full of fine salt to stick the sea salt around the glass rim.

Pop the decorated glass in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to set the decoration.
Remove any salt that runs back to the center of the glass as you don’t want too much salt in your margarita!
When the glasses are set, remove them from the freezer and serve the frozen margarita into each glass with a few fresh berries on top and mint leaves.
Margaritas are usually not served with straws, so serve as is, and enjoy the blend of salt on the glass rim and sweet raspberry margarita.

Absolutely! you can use this recipe to make strawberry margaritas, blue margaritas – using blueberries or boysenberries.
What Should I Do If My Margarita Won’t Blend?
This happens if the jug of your blender is too narrow at the bottom.
To help the blade pulse the frozen raspberries into a frothy margarita, add water or soda water, adding 1/4 cup at a time until it blends nicely.
Can I Use Fresh Raspberries?
I don’t recommend fresh fruits in this recipe, or the margarita will be too runny, more like a syrup.
