Forget straining and chopping and shaking 100 ingredients, toss a handful of things in your Vitamix, blend 3 minutes and you have yourself a frozen goblet of heaven. Don’t have a Vitamix, use another blended – it should work just as well, although in our house Vitamix is Queen! It’s worth the investment in endless ways, we’ve never used a blender that comes close. We love to serve these in stainless steel stemless cocktail glasses, but you do you, boo. We find they keep drinks colder, and are unbreakable by the pool – and easy to stack. They also come in a very chic (but more pricey) gold option.
- 2 peeled limes, whole
- 1 peeled lemon, whole
- 1 peeled orange, whole
- 6 ounces high quality tequila
- 1/2 cup cointreau (or any orange-flavored liquor)
- 1 good squeeze of a light agave
- 5-6 cups of ice
- optional: 2 peels (bits of rind – enough to fit in a tablespoon) of lemon or lime zest
Toss all the following ingredients in a blender, blend til smooth. If it’s not getting smooth, add a drip of tequila while the blender is still going. Serve with garnish, or not.
These are also delicious with other fruits (berries, pineapple, dragonfruit, etc) and a bit of mint. However you experiment, you can’t go wrong with these. They are fail proof and perfect in every way. These summery drinks are the stuff pool day dreams are made of!
