Margarita Milkshake Ingredients

  • Ice Cream: Use your favorite variety of vanilla ice cream.
  • Triple Sec: Read more on this below.
  • Silver Tequila: You can see our recommendations below.
  • Lime Juice: We prefer fresh, but if all you have is bottled, go with that.

Triple Sec vs. Orange Liqueur

We tend to go with orange liqueur (like Cointreau) over Triple Sec. In general it is usually higher quality and higher alcohol content. That being said, if Triple Sec is what your budget can afford, go with that!

Tequila

When going to purchase tequila, we recommend looking for a brand that is 100% agave. You can find something within any budget.
