Make-Ahead Mango & Raspberry Margaritas

Long day at work? Rough day with the kids? Hot outside? Just really need a drink?
These little margaritas are just the ticket.
Good, cold, relaxing things come in small, glass, ready-made packages.
I love this recipe! I love that you can make these hours, days or even weeks ahead of your next big party. I love that they are ready to drink just minutes after you pull them out of the freezer. And I really love that I have a few single serve margaritas left waiting for the next time a margarita mood strikes. No need to pull out the blender for just one drink. And no awkward shouting to your guests over a loud blender while you’re entertaining. Bonus!
 Do not be fooled by their size- these margaritas pack a punch! Feel free to reduce the amount of alcohol to your liking- there’s around a shot and a half in each of these drinks (10 oz total alcohol goes into 6-7 drinks).
My Cinco de Mayo guests enjoyed the mango and raspberry flavors, but I am dying to try out some other fresh fruit combinations. I’m thinking blackberry, watermelon, blood orange.. almost any fruit will do. This recipe is great for big groups and for small groups- you can easily multiply it and freeze ahead for a crowd; or you can make a batch for one or two people, drink a few fresh, and then freeze the rest for later.
Give yourself a break and add this to your list of must-make summer drinks.

    Yes, please! These look wonderful. I’m told the summers get HOT here, so I think I should plan ahead and whip some of these bad boys up sooner rather than later to get me through the next several months.

  2. Holy Guacamole those look good

  3. Do they stay all slushy or do you have to crumble them or let them melt a little before drinking? This is SUCH a good idea!!
