Frozen Cantaloupe Margarita is another way to prepare a refreshing cantaloupe drink this summer. Cantaloupes are on sale and we have prepared some frozen cantaloupe cubes already. It is one day before July 4th and Cantaloupe Margarita is one of the drinks we are serving. The good thing about making fruity margaritas, the same basic margarita ingredients are used plus whatever fresh fruit you desire. So simple and economical.
Instead of using ice cubes, I have frozen and refrigerated cantaloupe cubes. Drinks are richer and tastier and not watered down. Cantaloupe can get thick when blended, so it is best to add some cold lemon lime drink with it. Frozen limeade can be used too. Also, if you have time, chill your glasses in the fridge and don’t forget to rim glasses with salt or sugar.
Many fruits are in season at this time of year, try my watermelon juice and nectarine mojito. They are so good and refreshing too. Another good one, but it’s not made of fruit is my spicy margarita. This is a drink with a kick, tequila and jalapeno.
Don’t be fooled, tequila disappears in the sweetness of the cantaloupe and triple sec. Don’t keep loading up on tequila if you don’t want any hang over. It is 2 am and I am craving this drink while writing this post. If you love cantaloupe, another drink you might like is the Cantaloupe Vodka Cocktail.
