Jargaritas

Jargarita

These Jargaritas would have been perfect for Cinquo de Mayo.  But since that ship has sailed for another year, you’re just going to have to find another excuse to make them.  Like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or the random weekend cookout.

But they come with a warning…these adult slushees have a way of sneaking up on you and knocking you on your arse.  So proceed with caution.

Jargaritas

Adapted from Bluebonnets and Brownies and Souffle Bombay

  • 12 ounces frozen limeade, thawed
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups tequila (I prefer patron silver)
  • 3/4 cup triple sec
  • 1 cup chambord
  • 4 cups cold water

If you plan to freeze these in individual portions, go ahead and get your jars and lids ready.  Otherwise find yourself a nice big pitcher or jug and combine all your ingredients.  Stir well.  Give it a taste and add more lime juice or tequila as desired.

Drinks can be portioned into jars, sealed tightly, and stashed in the freezer for about 4 or 5 hours or until they reach your desired level of frozen.  Or they can be enjoyed in a completely unfrozen state.

    Do they freeze completely or become slurpeeish?

    I know slushee is a better word. Sometimes ish makes things fun.

      Being truthful, I have to say neither and both. Straight from a long rest in the freezer these things are more like italian ice…which is not a bad thing in the least. Once they have had a chance to warm up a bit though, they morph into the most perfectish adult slurpeeish shlushee.

      There’s a three day weekend coming up. I suggest you clear some space in the freezer and get to know jargarita.

  2. Another good reason to make them? Because I’m coming to your house!

    Whenever I see tiny mason jars I think of you and the time you sent that little gift of the coconut macaroons. I hope you and family are well, Wendi.

      I can hardly believe it’s been two years since the summer of those love bombs. Life has just rolled along. And I’ve found another use for empty mason jars.

    • Wendi says:

      I’m like an old penny that keeps turning up! Seriously, I try and find enough time to string together a few thoughts and get them posted. Because y’all need to know about things like these Jargaritas. So glad you dropped by to find something new here.

  5. I just love these – they really are the perfect summer drink, aren’t they?
