Did everyone have a fun & festive July 4th weekend? I definitely enjoyed some much-needed time to unplug and soak up some major sunshine. I think the most strenuous activity I did was getting dressed to go to a friend’s backyard barbecue! Today I’m back in the office and churning through stacks of emails, but thought I’d share a little moment of summer escapism from the weekend. These peach margaritas were the perfect poolside refresher, and made the most of my absolute favorite in-season fruit. Juicy peaches puréed with a touch of agave nectar were such a delicious and pretty add-in to frozen margaritas. Follow the jump for the recipe!
I paired the margaritas with homemade chips & guac for a perfect pre-dinner snack. To make the chips, cut fresh corn tortillas into triangles, spray with a touch of olive oil, sprinkle with garlic salt, and pop in a 400 degree oven until golden and crispy. YUM!
- 1/2 cup silver tequila
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 1/2 oz peach schnapps
- 3 ripe peaches, peeled and pitted
- agave nectar
Place 2 peaches and a little agave nectar in a blender. Blend until smooth. Slice the 3rd peach and set aside.
Fill the blender 3/4 of the way with ice. Add all of the ingredients except 4 slices of peach. Blend together and garnish with slice of peach.
