As an environmental scientist, I am always looking for fun ways to integrate seasonal ingredients. And nothing screams summer more than peaches!

Green tip: Eating seasonally is one of the best (and most delicious) ways to support local and decrease your carbon footprint. Local foods have less associated transportation costs and fuel emissions. Simply put, eating seasonally = less environmental impact. Check when peaches are in season in your area with this Seasonal Food Guide.

Frozen Peach Margarita Tips and Tricks



Gather Your Ingredients First

It’s best to make sure you have everything you need before you get going! As for the peaches you can use fresh peaches or canned peaches. If you do use canned peaches, make sure you get peaches in water rather than peaches in syrup.

Peaches in syrup are super sweet, and we want to be able to control our sugar content. Here’s everything you’ll need:

tajin, ice, limes, tequila, agave, and peach slices

You’ll Need a Blender or Food Processor

In addition to your delicious ingredients, you’ll also need either a blender or a food processor, preferably a blender! I use this Ninja Blender for this recipe and a lot of my sauces and vinaigrettes. It works like a charm!

All you have to do is throw all of your ingredients in and blend until smooth. You want your peaches and ice to break down into tiny little fragments so that your margarita can be sipped through a straw.

Green tip: Consider investing in reusable straws! They are easy to clean and will reduce your contribution to plastic waste that eventually ends up in landfills or makes its way into the environment and becomes microplastics. These stainless steel straws are my favorite!

Add Your Ice First

It’s best to add the ice to the blender first to ensure it has the best access to the blades and crushes easily. It should break down into tiny, refreshing ice chips, resulting in an overall smooth consistency. The perfect way to cool down!

Once your ice is in, you can throw your other ingredients in, too!

Garnishing Your Rim

This part is optional, but if you want the ultimate margarita experience, it’s highly recommended! It’s simple to do. Just wet the rim of your glass with a lime and then dip it into Tajin or salt.

You can put the Tajin on a plate, in a shallow bowl, or easiest of all—use a cocktail rimmer. I love using Tajin here—it’s such a great addition of salt and spice to the otherwise sweet margarita.

Tested Substitutions

This recipe calls for 2 ounces of tequila blanco. It’s my preference just because it tends to be a tad more citrus-y, which plays well with the fresh lime. That being said, if you prefer reposado, that absolutely plays well with these ingredients, too!

I love using agave in margaritas because it is such a great tequila accompaniment! However, you can use any sweetener in place of it here. Use simple syrup, honey, or even molasses in the same amount in its place.

Should You Have Leftovers

This recipe makes about 4 cups of frozen margaritas. Depending on the size of your glass, this will make 2 or 4 very strong and refreshing drinks!

If you have leftovers, don’t chuck them out! Seal them in a container and store it in the freezer. The tequila will prevent them from freezing completely.

Leftovers will last up to 5 days in the freezer, and may need to thaw before enjoying.

That said, these margaritas are best made fresh, so I wouldn’t recommend making these ahead of time if you can avoid it.
