Oh. My. Word.
We’ve gone slam straight to summer in no time flat here in Eastern North Carolina and I’m not complaining ONE BIT. I’m probably the most cold-natured person you’ll ever meet… no joke. I’m still wearing a sweatshirt out on the boat until I can burrow myself into a warm spot on the beach out of the wind. I’ll probably stop wearing sweats on the boat in mid-August.
Being cold-natured doesn’t keep me from wanting a good, stiff frozen drink though.
Hey, I’ll suffer for it.
I originally thought I was going to do a non-frozen version of this drink, but when mixing it I knew it needed to be in crushed ice due to its richness.
So I broke out my new awesome KitchenAid Diamond blender. It has a HUGE 60-ounce pitcher, so I was able to make the entire batch in one pitcher. If you have a blender with a smaller pitcher, I would split the recipe in half and blend double batches.
Oh, by the way… this margarita is a tad on the strong side, so drink responsibly.
Cheers to summer!
