Simple BLENDi recipe for a delicious margarita

Here's a simple recipe for a delicious margarita that you can make in your 17 oz portable blender:


  • 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) tequila
  • 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) lime juice
  • 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) orange liqueur (such as Cointreau or Triple Sec)
  • 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) simple syrup
  • 4-6 ice cubes 
  • Salt (optional)
  • Lime wedge (for garnish)


  1. Add the tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, and simple syrup to your 17 oz portable blender.
  2. Add 3/4 to 1 cup of ice cubes to the blender.
  3. Blend on high until the mixture is smooth and slushy.
  4. If desired, rim the edge of a glass with salt. To do this, rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, then dip the rim into a small dish of salt.
  5. Pour the margarita into the glass.
  6. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!

Note: If you prefer a sweeter or tarter margarita, adjust the amount of simple syrup and lime juice to your liking. Also, feel free to add fresh fruit such as strawberries or mango for a fun twist. Cheers!
