Hello Cinco de Mayo and hello margaritas with a fresh and fun twist!
The recipe is simple and features only a few components that quickly transform into a delightful delicious fresh lime margarita! Just freeze the ingredients into ice cube trays and then top with your favorite tequila. The ice melts and the flavors blend together to make this your go-to beverage for breezy backyard and summer entertaining!
A must try!
The pink himalaya salt adds a savory finish and the perfect touch of posh!
1 Ice cube tray
6 large limes juiced + 1 lime sliced and halved for garnish
4 teaspoons orange liqueur – I use Cointreau
3/4 cup simple syrup (see instructions on how to make below)
pink himalaya salt for the rim
1-2 shots of your favorite tequila.
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
Stir sugar and water together and boil on the stove for one minute. Allow to fully chill.
Pour fresh squeezed lime juice from 6 limes into a medium-sized bowl. Stir in orange liqueur, and chilled simple syrup until combined.
Place each of the halved lime slices into each individual section of the ice cube tray.
Pour the lime, liqueur and syrup mixture into the ice-cube trays, over the top of each lime.
Place in the freezer and allow to chill for 2-3 hours or until solid.
Rub each cocktail glass in fresh lime and rim in pink himalaya salt.
Once frozen, remove the Margarita Ice Cubes from the tray by using a small thin knife.
Place 3 cubes in each glass, and pour 1-2 shots of tequila (depending on how strong you like it) over the ice-cubes.
Allow a few moments for the cubes to melt and blend with the tequila.
Garnish with a slice of fresh lime and enjoy!
This is such an easy and time-saving solution for entertaining guests! The cubes freeze well and can be made in advance.
This recipe makes about 6-8 cubes. You’ll want at least 3 cubes per glass. These can easily be made non-alcoholic as well!
Cheers! How are you celebrating? Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I’ll have more from the Minnie Mouse birthday to share later this week!
