Margarita Base Instructions

  1. Place the ingredients in your blender. More than likely you will have to do this in batches. Blend with the ice and then put the concentrate in a large pitcher or carafe’s.
  2. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Margarita Station

  1. Place all the add-ins and juices out on the table with some muddlers and straws to stir. Encourage people to get creative and make their own signature drink.
  2. Feel free to include any of your favorite fruits, herbs and juices.


Margarita Base

  • This is meant to serve a large crowd and for people to have more than one drink. You can easily half the recipe to serve a smaller crowd or check out my Classic Margarita Recipe on for a single serving.
  • Make ahead: You can combine the margarita ingredients 3-4 hours before the party and store in the refrigerator until your guests are about to arrive.

  • Be sure to provide your guests with some non-alcoholic beverage options too. I usually have an ice bucket full of La croix and sparkling water. Another great option would be my Beet and Pineapple Spritzer for a delicious mocktail.
  • Make ahead – You can put all the juices in jars and prep the fruit 6-8 hours before the party and pull everything out before your guests arrive.
