Margarita Slush

It only takes 4 ingredients to make this easy Margarita Slush! Great for backyard barbecues, pool parties, and summer nights! 

After the success of my Pink Lemonade Vodka Slush, I realized the world likes quick and easy slushy drinks made in ice cream pails.

Margaritas were an obvious next choice. Put out a batch (or two!) of these at your next backyard barbecue (Such  As 4th of July Tomorrow) and let everyone helps themselves. Easiest cocktail ever!

Distilling a margarita down to its essence, I was able to get away with just 4 ingredients:

  • Limeade
  • Tequila
  • Triple Sec
  • Soda

The soda makes the drink sweeter than some margaritas, but in slushy form it just works. Squirt is my favorite (or 50/50 by Wildwood if you’ve ever heard of that), but you can also use Sprite or 7UP.

In lieu of triple sec, you can also substitute an orange liqueur such as Cointreau.

Make this a day or two (or a month or two) in advance and your party-planning is even easier! The slush doesn’t freeze solid like a block of ice, so you don’t really need to thaw it in advance.

The salt rim is optional – many people prefer sugar or nothing at all. Garnish with lemon and lime wedges and drink up!

  1. I have been making something similar for years but when looking for a recipe to freeze ahead of time, I am worried about freezing the soda. Is it still carbonated when it freezes, or purely for taste?

    How many people would this recipe serve? Let’s say I’m making it for ONE person…..would cutting this recipe in half STILL be too much?

    1. meggan

      Hi Kelly! This recipe makes 12 servings, about a gallon of slush. So, a half-gallon of slush is probably too much for one person. That would be one cup of tequila and a half cup of triple sec, just for one person! I would divide by 4, at least. But I suppose it depends on the person! I hope this helps. Thanks for your question!
