The Secret to a Tasty Frozen Whole Lime Margarita? Using the Peel of the Lime


No matter your level of expertise in the kitchen, we all have that one thing we make sure to keep fully stocked. For some, it might be a bag of chip or a bottle of wine, but for me, it's the ingredients to make a margarita. And not just any margarita, but a frozen full lime margarita.

We're use to using limes solely for their juice or as a garnish, but what many might not realise is that a lot of the tangy lime flavour is in the peel! A full lime margarita utilises all parts of the lime, and the blending process isn't too different from a traditional margarita. All you have to do is squeeze the juice from your limes into a blender, then cut into quarters. Next, add those quartered limes along with tequila, salt, triple sec, sugar, and ice. Blend for a minute then serve in a salt-rimmed glass and you've got a yourself refreshing frozen cocktail that uses the whole lime — hence the name!

If you're in the mood for a lip-puckering boozy drink, you can never go wrong with a full lime margarita. Plus, it can easily be paired with your favourite happy hour snacks like chips and guacamole. Keep scrolling to see just how easy this recipe is.
