One perk of making fruity frozen cocktails is that you don’t need to splurge on the most expensive liqueurs to achieve fantastic results. However, you will need a good quality 100% blue agave blanco (aka silver or white) tequila, an orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or regular triple sec, and some fresh lime juice to pull it all together.

Tip: If desired, rub a lime wedge along the top of each glass and dip into a shallow bowl filled with some coarse sugar before filling.
