Skip the artificial ingredients, and whip up homemade frozen margs instead

Jul 8, 2015 at 3:30 p.m. ET

My dad makes the best homemade frozen margaritas. They are the perfect balance of sweet, tart and boozy. Now, he normally makes them classic lime, but sometimes I like to switch it up and throw in a little fruit. All of these recipes are perfect for summer porch sipping.

If you're not a fan of lime, strawberry or mango, try using your favorite frozen fruit instead. A few of my favorites are peach, raspberry and even cherry.

The best part about these margaritas is that they're made 100 percent from scratch, so there are no weird ingredients, and you can make everything fresh.
