This easy peach margarita cocktail recipe has been sitting on my to-write queue for quite some time.
My to-do list is huge, and sometimes it is hard to prioritize what recipe I should post next. I usually have 7-10 gluten free recipes in my pipeline that are cooked and photographed...but the actual photo editing and then writing the post can often set me behind.
My brain is always on overdrive when it comes to thinking about flavor combinations, and what to make next. Mr. Fearless Dining won't even go to the grocery store with me because I have to look at everything :-). Do you ever get this way in the grocery store?
I recently found this tutorial to make flavored sugars and it has taken my cocktails to a whole new level of yummy! It definitely makes this peach margarita recipe spectacular. Check out the Sriracha Salt on these Grapefruit Margaritas!
How to make flavored sugar:
In making a ginger sugar, I used ground dried ginger spice and plain sugar. I added 1 ½ teaspoons of the ginger to a cup of sugar. If you like a real ginger taste, you can use even more.
I kept it all sealed in a container for 5 days, but from what I have read, it should be ready in 2-3 days. Think of all of the delicious flavors of sugar you can make!
This frozen peach margarita would also be a big hit for Cinco de Mayo!
Can you use frozen peaches for this margarita recipe?
You can definitely use frozen peaches for this margarita recipe. You will need a little less ice, or more liquid to compensate for the extra icy quality of frozen peaches.
Can you use canned peaches?
I think this depends on how sweet you like your drinks. Canned peaches are syrup laden and very sweet. You can use them, but you have been warned :-).
More fun cocktail recipes to try:
- Mason jars to seal up the sugar with ginger, or other flavorings.
- Vitamix to mix it all up in.
Frozen Peach Margaritas with Ginger Sugar Rim
- 4 ounces tequila
- 2 ½ cups peach nectar/juice/pureed fresh peaches
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ginger sugar for the rim
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 2 cups ice
- If you are using fresh peaches, puree your peaches in a blender with 2 tablespoons of water.
- Add all ingredients into the blender except the ginger sugar. Blend. Rub lime over rim of glass and dip the rim into the ginger sugar.

I must make one of these this week! The flavors sound amazing. I'm not a tequila person, but I think this blend would be amazing with rum too. Or even as a virgin drink!
I am so glad you liked this recipe. I love peach everything, and it could definitely make a great virgin drink too.
Oooh what a lovely refreshing cocktail! Looks sensational
Thank you so much Kate 🙂
