The only thing better than choosing between Sangria and a Margarita is enjoying them both by having a Frozen Sangria Margarita. The Frozen Sangria Margarita is like having two cocktails swirled together in one glass for refreshing enjoyment! Now that’s Frozen Sangria Margarita heaven!
Sangria swirled throughout the base margarita makes a delicious festive treat. Subtle wine notes weave sweetness in with citrus tart of the traditional margarita. This wonderful frozen treat is easily accomplished with simple blender and freezer method. There is no need for slushy machines at home. An added bonus… the base recipe without the sangria makes a great variation on the traditional Margarita. It’s like two cocktails in one! Now that’s something to celebrate!
