Side of lemon guacamole. (If you don't want to splurge with chips, serve guac with warmed corn tortillas.)
Fresh-squeezed citrus makes this frozen, frosty margarita a special treat.
The flavors of this Margarita are light and fresh – creamy and smooth. Lime and orange mingle with pineapple and banana. Tropical meets sunny for s super refreshing, fresh-squeezed flavor.
No Rules. The best part about creating a smoothie / margarita is that there is tons of room for modifications. You can use a wide variety of juices and fresh fruits – frozen too. Guava. Banana. Kiwi. Pineapple. Apple. Watermelon. Papaya. Coconut. Strawberry. Blueberry. Lime. Grapefruit. And on and on.. Blend up your craving.
My only rule: no “margarita mix” allowed...

3 shots gold tequila (to make virgin, sub with more fruit juice)
