15 Best Fruit Flavored Margarita Recipes

There's a Margarita Out There for Everyone

Margaritas come in every flavor imaginable and a great variety of fruits pair well with tequila. When it's time for a refreshing and fruity margarita, you'll have no problems finding a tasty recipe.

The Margarita is supposed to be a fruity drink. The original recipe simply uses lime with a hint of orange and from there the possibilities are endless. These cocktails are fantastic ways to drink the fruits of the season and fresh fruits are not required for every recipe, either. Many simply use a fruity liqueur for the flavor.

From apples and strawberries to tangerines and melons, let's explore some of the tastiest fruit margaritas you can mix up.

    The Original Margarita

    You will need: tequila, triple sec, lime juice

    It all begins with the original Margarita. It is simple, yet timeless and a drink that is best when made from fresh ingredients. Of course, if you feel like firing up the blender, you can always enjoy this Margarita frozen.

    In either the shaken or frozen version, tart lime is the featured fruit. You will need 1-ounce per drink, which is the typical yield from one large lime. It's simple, it's fantastic, and it's far better than those far-too-sweet margarita mixes.

    How is that possible? Quite simply, it's all about the orange liqueur. Curacao and triple sec are both orange flavored, yet by choosing blue curacao the drink takes on a completely different look. It's a fun trick for creating those irresistible blue cocktails.
