Frozen Guava Margarita

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 cup guava juice
  • Lime wedges, for rimming the glass and garnish
  • Margarita salt, if desired
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup sliver tequila
  • 1 tablespoon Triple Sec or other orange flavored liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon Simple Syrup


  • Pour the guava juice into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight. (One cup of juice should make 8 standard ice cubes.)
  • Rub a lime wedge around the edge of a margarita glass and dip immediately in the margarita salt, turning to coat. Place the glass in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • In a blender, combine the lime juice, tequila, Triple Sec, simple syrup, and guava ice cubes and pulse until smooth. Pour into the prepared glass, garnish with a lime wedge, and serve immediately.
