How To Make Perfect Frozen Margaritas
This week for Last Call, my frozen drink series continues with arguably the most popular cocktail in the state. That's right, it's time to make some frozen margaritas. Sounds simple enough. I've already written an article about "regular" non-frozen margaritas; all I'd have to do is take one and toss it in a blender, right? Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Frozen drinks have challenges that you don't have to deal with when making drinks straight up or on the rocks. The main one is a matter of taste. There's a double whammy going on here. First, all of the ice you're consuming waters down the drink more than usual, so you have to use strong tasting ingredients. Second, the very cold temperature numbs your taste buds. A regular margarita that's been blended will taste like nothing.
