Frozen Passion Fruit Margarita

Passion fruit is very acidic, so it’s not necessary to use as much lime juice in this recipe as in a traditional margarita. If you prefer a margarita on the rocks, blend the drink for a shorter period of time and then strain it into a glass filled with ice.

To make simple syrup, in a measuring cup, stir together 1/4 cup superfine sugar in 1/4 cup hot water until dissolved. Let cool. This recipe makes 3 fl. oz. syrup and can be doubled or tripled as needed.


  • 8 fl. oz. passion fruit nectar 
  • 6 fl. oz. silver tequila 
  • 3 fl. oz. fresh lime juice 
  • 2 fl. oz. simple syrup (see note above) 
  • Ice, as needed 
  • 4 lime wedges


Chill 4 glasses in the freezer until frosted.

In a blender, combine the passion fruit nectar, tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and ice. Process on high speed until smooth and slushy. Pour into the chilled glasses, garnish each drink with a lime wedge and serve. Makes 4 drinks.
