You may think you love margaritas, but do you love them as much as Jimmy Buffet?
It all started with a song, ‘Margaritaville,’ and then that love for a cold, refreshing margarita soon evolved into a chain of restaurants that is a home for margarita lovers everywhere.
Margaritaville now has over 30 locations, serving delicious food and, of course, tasty margaritas. Jimmy then soon turned his hand to Margaritaville Spirits that include tequila and sour mix, and, of course, the Margaritaville blenders.
Needless to say, these incredibly strong blenders are the blenders of choice for margarita making!
Of course, while there are delicious recipes out there for margaritas made the old-fashioned way (shaken with traditional bar tools), blended margaritas do have a certain appeal for the novice, home cook.
They’re quick and easy for one thing. Making them is as simple as gathering the ingredients, putting them together, and then just sticking them in the blender.
Plus, an extra-strength blender like a Margaritaville blends these ingredients to perfection, and the pitcher is specifically designed to be easy to maneuver in and out of place without spilling.
You wouldn’t want to lose even one drop of your delicious, refreshing margarita, would you?
They’re also ideal for making frozen margaritas, and everyone wants frozen margaritas on a hot day. Everyone loves the guy or girl who comes out with a tray of colorful, melting cocktails during a sweltering BBQ!
Below, you’ll find 25 of the best Margaritaville recipes out there.
Some of these recipes are specific to Margaritaville blenders, some take inspiration from the Margaritaville menu, while some are blended cocktails your Margaritaville blender is sure to make quick, easy work of.
