It’s hard to find a more refreshing cocktail than a classic margarita on the rocks. However, on a hot summer day, there’s one drink that might come close: a frozen margarita. We know, it’s still technically a margarita, but there’s something about freezing it that really takes this drink to the next level.
Picture it. You’re at the pool, on your back deck, or even hanging out in your kitchen. It’s hot, you’re sweaty, and you want something besides water that will actually cool you off. You want a frozen margarita, and you want it now!
Enter the easiest frozen margarita recipe ever. You only need two ingredients for it. Seriously.
The Easiest Frozen Margarita
Serving size: 1
- 2 cups of Flybird margarita (Baja Lime, or your favorite flavor)
- ½ cup of ice*
- Optional add-ins (see below)
Tip: If you’re worried about the ice diluting your margarita, try making your own margarita ice cubes! Simply fill an ice cube tray with any Flybird margarita. Let them freeze for a few hours, and then use them in your next frozen margarita. We recommend preparing a few ice cube trays so they’ll be ready to go next time you’re craving a frozen margarita.
- Add your ready-to-drink Flybird margarita and ice to a blender.
- Blend well.
- Pour the blended mixture into your favorite glass.
*Experiment with the margarita-to-ice ratio until you find your preferred consistency. We recommend starting with less ice, then adding more until you are satisfied. Of course, you can always add more margarita if you’ve added too much ice for your liking.
If you’re feeling creative, level up your frozen margarita with any of these add-ins!
- Lime juice
- Coconut water (or make coconut water ice cubes)
This simple recipe is ideal for any kind of day, and it’s especially convenient for traveling! Rather than packing all the typical margarita ingredients for your trip, all you have to do is pack a few bottles of Flybird margarita, and you’re good to go. Less packing, less planning, less preparing, and more time for fun!

Disclaimer: We did think of one frozen margarita that might actually be easier than the recipe we’re sharing below: a frozen margarita that you order at a restaurant or bar. But when you factor in driving to the restaurant, waiting for your drink, and then waiting for them to make you a second one…it might not actually be easier!
