HELLO, SUMMER COCKTAILS! HELLO, FRESH CHERRY MARGARITAS!
This frozen frosty beverage features fresh cherries, lime juice, triple sec, and tequila!!! Just swirl them together in your blender for 30 seconds, pour them in a tall glass, and you’re on your way to happy hour heaven. Good friends are highly recommended 😉
Now that we’re back in Brooklyn and battling real life plus catch up, we’re easing back into it all with comfort food and cocktails. I’ll have the comfort food for you tomorrow, but right now let’s just concentrate on the cocktails! Fresh cherry margaritas to be specific! It’s a Summer sipping spectacular 🙂
This cocktail is SO simple to make, especially if you have someone pitting your cherries 😉 I say get the man/friend/guest-that-arrived-early to help with that.
Once the cherries are pitted, just toss them in the blender with lime juice, sugar, triple sec, tequila, and ice, and BLEND!
Pour into an ice cold glass, top with a slice of lime, and serve! Cheers, friends! xoxo

How many servings does this cocktail make?
I get about 4 🙂
I wonder if this would work just as well with frozen cherries instead of fresh?
Hey Sarah! You can totally use frozen. Just add less ice before blending 🙂
These margaritas sound so delicious! Just perfect for a long, lazy summer afternoon.
I have never had a cherry margarita but need to now after seeing this. Wow!!
Oooh, this looks amazing — definitely perfect for summer! Good luck easing back into “normal” life — I’m there myself!
Cherries and tequila.. sounds just too good to be true! 😀
