“The World’s First Frozen Margarita Machine” was created from a soft serve ice cream maker in 1971 by Mariano Martinez, of La Hacienda Ranch restaurants in Dallas, Texas (you can read up on the history of the drink here). With all due respect to the ingenious inventor, many frozen margaritas dispensed from churning machines these days taste like syrupy convenience store slushies with a shot of bottom-shelf tequila thrown in. Our recipe blends real strawberries, quality tequila, simple syrup, fresh-squeezed lime juice, triple sec, ice, and a touch of salt to really bring out all the flavors. In just a few minutes you’ll have a fresh-tasting, balanced pitcher of frozen margaritas that can serve a Cinco de Mayo crowd or your backyard barbecue.

Game plan: You’ll need to make the Simple Syrup before you begin.
