What Makes This Recipe So Good
Fruit sorbet – Because fruit sorbet is made without cream, the sweet, refreshing flavors of the fruit shine through. Depending on the flavor, it can be tart, strong, or just deliciously sweet.
Tequila – It’s not a margarita without tequila!
Lime juice – A little lime juice helps bring out the fruit in the sorbet and gives the drink a little tart citrus flavor.

The full recipe is below, but here you’ll find all the steps for making this recipe perfectly the first and 100th time, along with useful tips and info!
Blend all the ingredients on high speed until combined, about 20-30 seconds.
Pour the margs into salt- or sugar-rimmed glasses and serve with wedges of lime or fruit.
Top Tips For Making
- I used strawberry, raspberry, and mango sorbet with these margaritas, but you can use any sorbet you like. For the perfect traditional margaritas, look for lime sorbet.
- To rim your glass, make a small cut down the middle of a lime wedge. Stick this cut right on the edge of your glass, and rub the lime all the way around. Dip the lime-covered edge into a shallow bowl or dish filled with coarse salt or granulated sugar.
What Kind of Tequila Should I Use?
There are five types of tequila, all made in Mexico from the agave plant. If you’re not a big tequila drinker, it can be tricky knowing which one to pick. Here’s a quick breakdown of each type:
- Blanco, also called silver, plata, or white – The purest agave flavor since it’s not aged in an oak barrel. Blanco is great for cocktails (and what I used for this one) since it is a stronger tequila and sweeter.
- Reposado, also called rested or aged – Aged for two months to a year in oak barrels, reposado is flavored by the aging process, but also retains the sweetness of the agave.
- Añejo, also called extra aged or vintage – Aged for a year to three years in oak barrels, añejo is richer and less intense than the younger versions of tequila.
- Extra añejo, also called ultra aged – If the tequila is aged for anything longer than three years, it’s considered extra añejo. These tequilas are smooth and quite pricy.
- Joven, also called gold or oro – This tequila is not 100% agave and includes additives like sugar, oak extracts, or artificial coloring. It’s another good choice for cocktails since the flavors mix well.
If you love margaritas but aren’t crazy about the alcohol, try a non-alcoholic tequila like Ritual Zero Proof.
