Rated 5 out of 5 by Skau from Instant Hit! Ok, so day 2 of our new family member, Vitamix (Mr.Red) just happened to be New Year’s Eve. Had a bunch of people over and had planned on making this recipe, until one of the adults stated they had not drank (couldn’t even stand the smell) of Tequila since college, lol! I decided to make it anyway, with faith in Mr. Red, and 100% agave tequila:) As I was peeling the fruit everyone was asking what I was making, , , following the directions 99%. I used simple syrup instead of sugar, but same quantity. Blended it for maybe 15-20 seconds,Voila, an instant hit! The guest who hadn’t had tequila in 25 years LOVED it! Ha! She actually “yelled” and cussed at me due to how much she couldn’t believe she liked it:) it made my night!! So glad we bought such a powerful, yet easy to use machine!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ansola from Who makes the best margaritas? Well, now I do! I am ruined for any restaurant margarita; darn you Vitamix! I have served this to a couple of people who said they "hated" tequila, and now love it because of this drink. A hint too; you can make a large batch of this and put it in a container in the freezer. The alcohol will keep it from freezing and you can simply stir it and scoop into your glass, keeping blended margaritas on hand for a couple of days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DA_SYR from Excellent! Even for Margarita Snobs! I agree with some of the other reviewers about decreasing the amount of ice a bit, and I don’t see the need for water. Here are my other suggestions: - Add 2-3 strips of lemon and lime rind (the vitamix will turn them into “zest”) - use only 100% de agave tequila (always), and I recommend a good Reposado over blanco or anejo for this recipe (for the price: sauza hornitos is a good accessible option) - Cointreau over triple sec always ... patron citronge is a nice cheap alternative to Cointreau

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evil Jen from OMG! So good! Just received my Vitamix yesterday. After work today I made a half version of the whole fruit margarita recipe. All I can say is WOW. I knew that the Vitamix was in a class all its own (hello price tag!), but even in my wildest dreams I did not imagine I could make drinks like this at home. Truly the best frozen drink maker out there!! I'm going to enjoy experimenting and seeing what else this baby can do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SandraG from The Best Have made this several times. People who don't really like margaritas love this one. I prep all the fruit ingredients, seal them with my food sealer and freeze. When I need a batch throw frozen fruit into the Vitamix with the liqueur and sugar....margaritas in less the a min!!!
