Frozen Ginger-Peach Margarita

We have Mariano Martinez, of La Hacienda Ranch restaurants in Dallas, Texas to thank for “The World’s First Frozen Margarita Machine”—he created it in 1971 by modifying a soft serve ice cream maker (read more about that here). Nowadays, fruity frozen margaritas are often shunned by margarita connoisseurs because of their fake flavor and watery consistency, but done right, they really hit the spot on a sweltering summer day. Frozen fruit gives this margarita its peachiness, smoothielike consistency, and real fruit flavor. A splash of ginger liqueur, combined with the oaky flavor of reposado tequila, gives it a little bit of spice.

What to buy: Reposado translated means “rested.” Reposado tequila is aged a minimum of two months and up to a year in oak barrels, giving it a smoother, slightly oaky flavor compared to blanco, or unaged, tequila.

Domaine de Canton is a ginger-flavored liqueur that can be found at specialty liquor stores.

Steer clear of budget peach schnapps for this recipe. We recommend Stirrings or Briottet Crème de Pêche peach liqueur.
