I’m calling this collection IBC’s Best Margarita Recipes. I love every recipe that’s in it. Believe it or not, until I put together this post, I’d forgotten how many margarita recipes have appeared on the blog.
You won’t go wrong when you make any of my best margarita recipes for yourself or your guests. The challenge will be choosing one recipe. You might have to compromise and fix a couple!
The Best Margarita Recipes:
I enjoy unique takes on traditional recipes, but I also relish a well-made classic. This simple recipe blends high-quality ingredients for the ultimate margarita flavor. Once you have a sip, you’ll know why this drink is among my best margarita recipes.

Homemade Margarita Mix
This mix consists of water, sugar, lemon juice, and lime juice. To fix a margarita, you just add tequila. So easy! I especially like the lemony freshness which is why this margarita mix recipe is also in my Collection of Delicious Lemon Recipes.
Spicy Jalapeño Ginger Margarita
If you want to spice things up, this is the best margarita recipe for doing so! It’s a regular margarita jazzed up with fresh jalapeño slices, ginger root, and a lime sea salt rim. It’s so good! I even tell you how to turn up the heat, sweet, or sour, depending on your tastes.
Prickly Pear Margarita
Thanks to the prickly pear cactus, this margarita is loaded with fabulous flavor and color. I served this special concoction in a margarita glass with a green cactus-shaped stem. The fun garnish is a cactus cocktail charm with a thin slice of lime.

Vanilla Pineapple Margarita
Oh my, this drink is so-o-o tasty! It combines the smoothness of vanilla with the tanginess of pineapple and orange. I poured mine in a striking margarita glass with a blue-tinted rim and blue base. The garnish: a vanilla pod and chunk of fresh pineapple. I made this for my Cinco de Mayo celebration!
Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita
I love the combination of flavors in this gorgeous drink. That delightful strawberry rhubarb comes from the simple syrup that you make. If you’re a huge fan of rhubarb like I am, you’ll also want to take a look at my other favorite rhubarb recipes.
Raspberry Strawberry Margarita
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is a “berry good” spring or summer cocktail. Strawberries and blackberries get blended together to add sweetness to a classic margarita! I topped mine off with a sprig of mint and a mini-skewer of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries.
Yes, you can offer margaritas at a large get-together. Mixing up a big batch of this margarita punch is quick and easy. Just pour it in a glass dispenser with sliced limes and strawberries and set salt-rimmed glasses and ice cubes nearby for guests to serve themselves.
Best Frozen Margarita Recipes:
Strawberry Coconut Margarita
Here’s another luscious libation for a warm spring or summer day. Pull out your blender and whip up this margarita recipe with cream of coconut, fresh strawberries, and lots of other yummy ingredients. The pièce de résistance is roasted coconut on the honey-rimmed glass.
Frozen Blackberry Margarita
Or cool off and celebrate summer with this version of the margarita. It’s a refreshing blend of blackberries with tequila and honey. And it’s scrumptious to behold when presented in a stemless glass rimmed with sugar and adorned with a lime wedge and a couple of frozen blackberries.
This cocktail is also perfect for summer sipping. It’s made with fresh watermelon and homemade simple syrup. For garnish, I used a lime slice and a paper straw with a green zig-zag design.
Bonus Margarita-Inspired Recipe:
Mini Margarita Cheesecakes
Are you in the mood for a little dessert with your margarita? Then this margarita recipe is for you! Each single-serving cheesecake is in a small mason jar. A cactus made by piping melted candy takes this treat to beyond cute.
Okay, those are IBC’s Best Margarita Recipes. Let us know which ones you’ve made or plan to make. I’d also love to hear how you embellish the classic margarita.
Cheers, my friends!
