Fruity Margarita

I love putting fruit in my drinks;  it's a great experience when the flavor of the fruit is enhanced by a small tinge of booze, and vice versa.  Nothing is better than an icy beverage on a hot day, so I decided to make a post about the most popular twist on the margarita one filled with chunks of delicious fruits.

What is a Fruity Margarita?

Fruit flavors are incorporated in the margarita to reduce the harsh flavor of the tequila. Fruit provides a different quality to the margarita. There are different variations of fruity margarita available. Strawberry, Watermelon, Peach, Grapefruit, Prickly Pear, Lime, Pomegranate, Limeade, Raspberry, Cranberry are used in the fruity margarita.  Each of these fruits give a unique flavor to the margarita, and the fruity twist is the most popular flavor ordered in bars worldwide.  These delicious concoctions are very easy to make, and resemble adult smoothies more than anything else.


  • ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 4 ½ cups of fruit
  • 6 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoon of St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
  • ¾ cup of 100% agave silver tequila
  • Ice cubes

How to make a Fruity Margarita?

  • Place the ice cubes in the glass.
  • Make a puree of fruit slices, salt, lime, tequila and St. Germain liqueur in the blender.
  • Then strain the puree with a strainer in order to get a smooth puree. You can use a ladle to make this process quickly.

There are countless variations of the margarita that involve the heavy use of fruit. There is the  strawberry margarita, where grand mariner, lime juices, strawberry puree or syrup, salt and sugar are used in the Strawberry margarita.  In addition, there are also Peach, Grapefruit, Prickly Pear flavor of margaritas is available pre-packaged in the market, although I highly advise you make your cocktails at home if you're reading my recipe blog.  The drink is a cool cocktail meant to be consumed in the summer, and open to countless variations and twists.  I am personally really fond of the strawberry margarita, but it's up to you to figure out which variations you personally prefer.
