Can You Freeze Leftover Margaritas?

  • Mix all of the margarita ingredients together and place in a zip top freezer bag. Lay on a cookie sheet or sheet pan until frozen, this keeps it flat and easy to store. For individual storage, fill half pint mason jars 3/4 full and seal with a lid. Freeze up to 3 months.
  • To Thaw: Remove from freezer and thaw in refrigerator. Stir well and serve over ice or serve a frozen margarita right from the mason jars.
