Sometimes you just want a good margarita. Why not try out this easy recipe for my famous Marquisrita. That’s pronounced Mar-Key-Rita, and said just as fast as margarita. Did I lose you? I can’t take the credit for this perfect name, that credit will have to go to our friend, Mike.
What’s great about a Marquisrita is that it’s simple to make and refreshing. It’s a very basic “1, 2, 3” recipe. This is for a frozen one, so if you’re looking for an “on the rocks” recipe, you’ll find our link at the end of this post!
Want to make a great Marquisrita? The secret is in your blender. When we first made Marquisritas in college, formerly club ‘MUTS’ (Margaritas Under The Sun) we were using a very basic blender. So basic, that it wouldn’t even break the ice. Many years later, we upgraded to our (heads up, affiliate link!) KitchenAid 5-Speed Silver Blender. It’s fantastic and crushes ice in seconds.
The Original Marquisrita

- Ice Cubes (smaller the better)
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 3/4 cup triple sec
- 1/2 can (6oz) of frozen lime concentrate
- Fill 3/4 of a blender up with ice.
- Add 3/4 cup tequila, 3/4 cup triple sec, 1/2 can (6oz) of frozen lime concentrate. Blend until all of the ice is crushed.
- Serve and garnish with lime and/or a salted rim.
Want some fruit in your drink, like strawberries? Do the same as above, except switch out the lime concentrate for lemonade concentrate and add about a handful and a half of frozen strawberries, and blend.
And there you have it, a Marquisrita. Have you tried it shaken?
