I had a client that was celebrating her graduation/birthday and hired me to bartend her event. She’s a nature enthusiast and conservationist. She wanted one of her signature cocktails to be a frozen Margarita. Unfortunately, it was hot outside and the Margarita wasn’t quite frozen. 😅
Adding more ice to the blender would’ve solved the issue, but then it would’ve watered down the drink too much. Well I found the solution, should you want to make this at home.
Anyways, I thought about ladybugs and how in Spanish, it sounds similar to Margarita. So that was the inspiration behind this frozen drink. Enjoy!
