Frozen Virgin Raspberry Margarita Ingredients
You won’t need to spend a fortune on supplies to recreate this drink at home. You’ll just need:
- Raspberries. The raspberries must be frozen to create the icy consistency, so you can either use normal frozen raspberries, or buy fresh raspberries then freeze them.
- Lime. I always prefer to use freshly squeezed lime juice, but a bottle version is fine if that’s all you have.
- Orange juice. This is an optional ingredient but I find it adds a lovely kick. Use freshly swueezed if possible, but again, bottled is fine too!
- Stevia, or your sweetener of choice. If you’re using Stevia you won’t need a large amount as it’s so sweet. You can adjust the quantities to your preferred level of sweetness.
- Vanilla essence. Completely optional but I find this finished the mocktail off nicely.
- Sugar for rim. I tested both sugar and salt for this rim, and everyone who tried it voted for the sugar rim! If you prefer a salted rim, go for it.
How to create the salt or sugar rim
Using a lime wedge, moisten the rim of the glass. Its up to you how thick you want your rim to be but I find a thin rim works well. A thin rim is also best if you are watching your sugar consumption.
Tip: make sure to angle the lime so you moisten the outside of the glass only, or you’ll end up with floats in your virgin raspberry margarita!
Once the rim is moistened, gently place the glass upside down on the saucer. You might need to turn it on its side a little as you work your way around. If you don’t get it right the first time, just wash it off and try again.
How to make it
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. You can add extra water if you prefer a thinner consistency, or less if you like it thicker.
Serve in sugar rimmed margarita glasses with a lime wheel.
I hope you enjoy drinking these virgin raspberry margaritas as much as I loved creating them!
