Drink of The Week: Frozen Peach Margarita

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

Fall is quickly approaching. When I start seeing the beautiful ripe peaches at the grocery store, that’s when I know. That there is an end to the heat, halloween is on it’s way and carmel apples, apple cider and pumpkins are in my future. With that in mind I thought we would go with something just peachy this week!

Frozen Peach Margarita’s


• 3 peaches peeled and sliced
• 2 T fresh lime juice
• 1 C tequila
• 1/2 C triple sec (orange cointreau)
• 3 T honey
• 3 C ice


  1. Peel and cut your peaches into manageable pieces. If you want, you can stick the peaches in the freezer before you make your drink, but it’s not totally necessary.
  2.  Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until your desired consistency is reached.
  3.  Pour into frozen glasses. You can salt the rim if you want, but I just garnished with a piece of fresh mint.

Makes 3 to 4 drinks.
