Frozen Ginger-Peach Margarita
Fruity frozen margaritas are often shunned by margarita connoisseurs because of their fake flavor and watery consistency. Frozen fruit gives this margarita its peachiness, smoothielike consistency, and real fruit flavor. A splash of ginger liqueur, combined with the oaky flavor of reposado tequila, gives it a little bit of spice.
What to buy: Reposado translated means “rested.” Reposado tequila is aged a minimum of two months and up to a year in oak barrels, giving it a smoother, slightly oaky flavor compared to blanco, or unaged, tequila.
Domaine de Canton is a ginger-flavored liqueur that can be found at specialty liquor stores.
Steer clear of budget peach schnapps for this recipe. We recommend Stirrings or Briottet Crème de Pêche peach liqueur.
