#MenuMonday: Red, White and Blue Margarita

#MenuMonday: Red, White and Blue Margarita

Happy Fourth of July! #MenuMonday is back again! This week we have a recipe from gimmesomeoven.com for a Red, White and Blue Margarita.  The margarita is a perfect drink for this patriotic holiday as it has red, white and blue layers symbolizing our nation’s colors.  This drink is for those who are twenty-one years or older only.

Red, White and Blue Margarita

Ingredients

Frozen Strawberry Margarita Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (12 ounces) frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (or honey)
  • extra ice, if needed

Frozen Blueberry Margarita Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (12 ounces) frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (or honey)
  • extra ice, if needed

Frozen Coconut Margarita Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (I recommend full-fat)
  • 1/2 cup silver tequila
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (or honey)
  • extra ice, if needed
  • Optional: a fresh lime wedge and margarita salt or sugar, to rim the glasses

Directions

  1. For each of the margarita recipes, add the five ingredients to a blender and pulse until completely smooth. If the mixture is too thin, add extra ice until it is the consistency of a thick slushy. Pour into a container, and store in the freezer while you rinse the blender to make the next batch.
  2. If you would like to rim your glasses with salt or sugar, make a small slit in a fresh lime wedge and run it around the tops of your glasses to wet the edges. Then invert the glasses, and dip them in a bowl of salt or sugar to coat the rims.
  3. Use a spoon to scoop your desired first flavor of margaritas into the bottom of your serving glasses until they are 1/3 full. Add your second flavor, and then your final flavor. Serve immediately.

Tip:  Once your first layer is in, do not add a huge spoonful of the next color on top. Rather, add just a few small spoonfuls of the next color in small piles around the edges of the first layer until you have made a circle border. Then fill in the center, and then you can start adding in larger spoonfuls on top of that. (Repeat with the third layer.) If you add a huge glop of a new color, it will make the layer underneath get super uneven and start to bleed color everywhere.

After about five to ten minutes the colors will combine anyway as they will start to melt so don’t worry too much about perfectly layering the colors.  They will still be delicious in the end.
