The weather is heating up here in Texas, and we are loving anything frozen, especially these Blackberry Peach Frozen Margaritas! Bring on the tequila and limes, because this party starts NOW! 🙂

It’s fun serving frozen drinks, and I’ve got more to share with you. Try my Frozen Pina Colada Cocktails, some refreshing Watermelon Frosè, and this Pink Lemonade Vodka Slush! If you’re interested in a non-alcoholic drink, make these Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktails!

Frozen Margaritas

We have officially preparing for the “dog days” of summer here in Texas.

  • temps hovering around 100 degrees
  • heat index over 100
  • the swimming pool getting daily use
  • daily watering of our flowers and plants
  • the a/c running 24/7

Even Theo (our pup) doesn’t want to venture outside during those dog days. He lays on the floor in our kitchen to cool off, or finds a spot directly under the air vents. SMART dog!

So yes, when the dog days hit hard, we find ourselves blending A LOT. Smoothies, protein shakes, slushies, and yup, you guessed it….Blackberry Peach Frozen Margaritas! Because they are so cool, so smooth, and so good on a hot, sunny, dog day of summer.

Ingredients needed for Blackberry Peach Frozen Margaritas:

You can definitely stock these ingredients in your freezer/refrigerator all summer long. You never know when you’re gonna want a frozen margarita, especially during those dog days.

  • Frozen Fruit – You’ll need a bag of frozen blackberries and a bag of frozen peaches. I recommend keeping your freezer stocked with these AT ALL TIMES. 😀
  • Limes – Go ahead and squeeze those limes ahead of time, and store the juice in your refrigerator until go time. The lime juice is so important for margs!
  • Liquor – I use a good quality silver tequila and Cointreau for these frozen drinks. You could go with a cheaper triple sec if you’d like, but not too cheap!
  • Simple Syrup – If you like a little bit of sweet in your cocktail, make up a simple syrup ahead of time. Just boil equal parts sugar and water until the sugar dissolves. Make sure it’s cold before adding it to cocktails.
  • Ice – Adding some ice will dilute the drinks slightly, and add to the frozen consistency at the same time.
  • Fresh blackberries – These are optional, of course, but used to decorate the glasses.
  • Salt – I ran a lime around the glasses and then dipped in kosher salt. Again, optional step, but I love a pretty cocktail!

How to make these frozen margs in a snap:

  1. Prep ahead. Squeeze limes and store the juice in a mason jar in the refrigerator. Make simple syrup and keep it cold as well.
  2. Decorate glasses. Use your favorite margarita glasses and prep them. I use a variety of glasses, and decided mason jars would be a perfect size for these. Just run a lime around the rims and then dip them in kosher salt. Take some fresh blackberries and arrange them on a cocktail stirrer, or some sort of party stir sticks.
  3. Make the blackberry margs. In a large blender, combine the lime juice, liquors, a bit of simple syrup (if desired), and the frozen blackberries. Blend, and then add the ice to get to your desired consistency. Pour into the glasses until about halfway full. Rinse blender well.
  4. Make the peach margs. In the blender, combine the lime juice, liquors, a little simple syrup (if desired), and the frozen peaches. Blend, and then add ice. Pour on top of the blackberry margs in the glasses.
  5. Enjoy!

Tips for making the PERFECT Blackberry Peach Frozen Margaritas:

  1. Buy good quality tequila and orange liqueur.
  2. Use fresh limes – NOT optional! They make a huge difference.
  3. Rinse the blender out between the blackberry margs and the peach margs so you can keep the colors separate.
  4. Put your simple syrup, liqueurs and lime juice in the refrigerator a few hours before blending, so everything is nice and cold. You can even put your glasses in the freezer.

If you’d like to prep the margs in advance, you can store the blackberry margs in a container and the peach margs in a separate container. Keep them in the freezer. At party time, remove from freezer and spoon them into the glasses. Let them sit for a few minutes to make them on the slushy side.

  1. Hi Sue. I’m really enjoying the 5 Things Friday recipes and seeing what you guys are up to. Can’t wait ’til we see each other in person so we can talk food! Question for you. Where did you find the wooden stir sticks? Plan on making this drink the next time the girlfriends come over!

    1. Suebee Homemaker says:

      Hi Ann! I’m glad you’re enjoying my newsletter! It’s been a long time since I bought those cocktail sticks, but I just looked on Amazon and linked something similar on the post. Good luck!

  5. Cheryl Ryan says:

    Hello Sue, my name is Cheryl Ryan, and I just used your recipe to make a pitcher of the blackberry and peach margaritas I saw on Pinterest – and they are fantastic! Besides being beautiful to look at, they leave one thinking about a second one before you’ve even finished your first glass. Lucky for us, we live in North Dakota, and just put the second batch outside to keep it cold (and I do mean cold). I didn’t have enough fresh blackberries, so I had to improvise. I used the blackberry jam I recently canned this year, and it did the job! I’m really impressed, and I’m looking forward to using more of your great recipes!

    Thanks!

    1. Suebee Homemaker says:

      Hi Cheryl! I’m so glad you enjoyed the margaritas!! They are definitely one of our favorites, and what a great idea to use your outdoors to store them. We grew up in Iowa, so I get it! Stay warm. 🙂

  8. Can I make these drinks kid friendly?

    1. Suebee Homemaker says:

      Hi Kenslie. I haven’t made them kid friendly, but I’m pretty sure you could just leave the alcohol out, and just blend them up. You might want to add a banana to get them extra creamy. Good luck!

  9. LOVE the glasses! Where did you get them?

    1. Suebee Homemaker says:

      I bought them at World Market! Perfect glasses for margaritas. 🙂
