“ Rather than your run-of-the-mill lime margarita filled with sour mix, this frozen tropical version includes four different kinds of fruit, fresh lime juice and Triple Sec (orange-flavored liqueur). Once blended, you’ll have a refreshing, fruity drink fit for a day at the beach. Alexa, Recipe Hunter ”
Nothing screams Cinco de Mayo like a cold, boozy margarita, and this one does not disappoint. It’s difficult to find a margarita that isn’t overwhelmingly sour or sweet, and they can sometimes end up tasting fake instead of fresh. Alaina’s version of this frozen delight includes four different kinds of tropical fruit, including papaya – which not only adds a sweet flavor but a vibrant orange color as well. One sip of this drink and you’ll start to feel the warm sand between your toes.
