Frozen Peach Margarita

This Frozen Peach Margarita is made with fresh peaches and sweetened with honey… No peach schnapps necessary! The perfect summer margarita looks like sunshine in a glass.

(This recipe for Frozen Peach Margaritas was originally published in 2011, but was updated with new photos and content in 2017).

Hello! If this Frozen Peach Margarita looks mildly familiar, that’s because it’s an oldie but goodie here at We are not Martha. From way back in 2011. Now that I’ve had this little space on the internet for almost 10 years (can you even believe that??), I figured it was high time for me to go back and update some of my most popular older posts that have images and copy that left much to be desired. If you haven’t been reading since WAY back in 2008, you might not even realize that I was legit taking photos with my camera phone back at the start. My flip phone camera. Or it might have been a Blackberry? I can’t remember. All I know is that it wasn’t an iPhone and the photos were horrible and no I’m not linking back to anything, so you’ll have to go find them yourself if you want to laugh at me.

Anyway, this Frozen Peach Margarita was first made at me and Chris’s first little apartment together. We love our house, but sometimes miss being in the hustle and bustle of the city. And having a pool. But I really don’t miss taking my food and cocktail photos outside on the deck with tons of other residents walking by wondering why the heck that weird girl is standing on a chair again. Also, there was the time our neighbor decided to set her dirty oven to “clean” and then leave for the day. Le sigh.

I made this drink again (such a struggle) and also made you a little video… Not that making this Frozen Peach Margarita is rocket science; you basically throw everything in your blender. But I wanted you to see just how easy it is.


The whole reason this margarita was born was because I couldn’t find a peach margarita made without peach schnapps. Which I am not a fan of. I can’t be the only one who just thinks about college when I think about peach schnapps, right? Ugh. Fresh peaches all the way.


Of course, you need a little sweetness since you’re not using schnapps, which is why you’ll want to add a healthy dose of honey. The triple sec or cointreau helps a little, too.

The first time I made these, I was wedding planning. Now I’m getting ready to celebrate my five year anniversary. Whoever said time flies when you’re having fun certainly wasn’t lying. I wish I could count the number of cocktails I made with Chris since this one way back in 2011. I also have a much nicer blender now as I now own a Vitamix (affiliate link!) and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s pricey, but I’ve used it nearly every day for years now and it works better than any blender I’ve ever owned.

This margarita is so fresh-tasting and smooth, with just the right touch of sweetness. It looks like sunshine in a glass and tastes even better.

Sadly, this weekend’s weather left much to be desired in Boston and the week ahead doesn’t look much better. BUT I’m pretty sure it’s just because Mother Nature wants to get all the cold and rain out of her system now so that the rest of the summer can be sunny and hot. Obviously margaritas are better enjoyed in the sunshine… But if you’re lacking sunshine, they’ll also help you imagine it exists.

If you didn’t get a chance to make these Frozen Peach Margaritas when I first introduced them to the world in 2011, I hope you’ll try them now. The summer is just getting started (and only unofficially so far), so you’ve got plenty of time to make them your official cocktail of summer!

    Liz Linder is AMAZING! I’ve worked with her a couple times for portraits and events through my job, and I’ve never seen someone put people at ease more. She’s right in Brookline Village and does beautiful work. Check out http://www.lizlinder.com

  4. Michelle says:

    I’m looking forward to hanging out with some of my favorite food bloggers this weekend for a potluck dinner!

  5. Sharon says:

    This drink looks delicious & so very fresh! FYI .. an easy way to peel peaches is to drop them in boiling water for 2-3 min. and then into a bowl filled with ice & water to stop the cooking…the skin just falls off.

  6. Vanessa says:

    Holy pretty color! Wedding photographers are so confusing- I have lots of friends looking so want to see who you choose!

  7. miri leigh says:

    This has to be the PERFECT summer drink. I will be making this tonight! Thanks for posting.

  8. Daisy says:

  9. Bakerbynature says:

  10. Reeni says:

  12. Greg says:

    Awesome! We just got a juice extractor and I have already experimented with “adult” juice. I will give blender smoothies a try and make a post some time soon.

  13. Lauren says:

    Michael J Charles Photography. Amazing!

  14. Shannon says:

    Peach schnapps has never been tasty to me. but i love the looks of this 🙂 maybe with some rum, since i don’t do tequila!

  15. Jenn's Food Journey says:

    That looks perfect for the kind of days we’ve been having here… 111…112….113!!! Ouch!

  16. Peggy says:

    Good luck with the wedding planning! We’re slowly but surely getting there ourselves!

    And we had margaritas this weekend too – watermelon ones! But I’ll be trying out this peach variety soon enough, don’t worry =)

  17. ArchitectsOfOurOwnDemise says:

    Love the site and, of course, this sexy looking tipple. I just got a Vitamix and this is at the top of my list of things to make in it. We’re getting married August 12, 2011 and I can tell you from experience – Don’t let the planning consume your life. Take time to enjoy the company of the one you love (perhaps with a summery sip such as this) and things will seem to more easily fall into place. Cheers!

  18. The Duo Dishes says:

    Peach Schnapps is an odd liqueur if you’ve ever tasted it by itself. It’s actually not very good. ha As you said, why go fake if you have the real thing? The peaches are almost perfect here, so it’s fun to play around with them.

  19. Erin @ A Nesting Experience says:

    Wow. I really wish I had one of these right now! Great recipe.

  20. Susan says:

    That is a beautiful margarita! I love the idea of using fresh peaches – perfect for summer. My favorite college drink was Lambrusco. I don’t think I could look at a bottle of that again 🙂

  21. briarrose says:

    Beautiful color in this drink. Refreshing and so tasty. Plus it has fruit so I file it under the healthy tab. 😉

  22. Kristen says:

    Oi. These look dangerously delicious. And since it is 75 and sunny out right now, I think it is almost time to kick it out of the office and hit up a Margarita Monday? Peaches, here I come.

  23. Gena @ A Bluebonnet in Beantown says:

    I agree about the peach schnapps. Just thinking about it sends me on some bad flashbacks. This looks absolutely beautiful and refreshing. I can’t wait to try it out.

  24. Eva says:

    Oh my goodness gracious! That looks like a summer drink if I’ve ever seen one 🙂 The ingredients sound wonderful, too!

  25. Angela says:

    Alicia Savage photography- she’s local & fabulous!!!!! http://www.aliciasavage.com/

  26. Jennifer @ Jane Deere says:

    So glad I found your blog! These peach margaritas look awesome!

  27. Kelsey says:

    Adding this to my to-make list. I rarely have tequila on hand, but next time I do, this is getting made.

  28. Leanna says:

    Loved it! Thanks for the tip…and good luck with wedding planning.

  29. Megan says:

    I’ve been craving a peachy drink for my last weekend of freedom (We go back to school on Monday) and this is perfect! Congrats on your engagement and good luck with all the planning!

  30. Hazlb says:

    Hmmmm! think I’ll try that

  31. Ryan says:

    I just made these with rum, as I didn’t have any tequila on hand. I left out some of the honey to compensate (only used about 1T), and we decided it needed something more, so I blended in the mint leaves. So yummy!! Great summer drink! Also, I didn’t peel the peaches, just blended them up, and it worked out great… you couldn’t even tell, plus, more fiber!

  32. Karen says:

    Pinned this recipe a while ago, just made it and drinking it now. I used 2 tsp of sugar because I dont like honey. So delicious! I like my drinks strong and this is strong. Thanks for the recipe.

  33. Gail says:

    Have just had the mango version of this pure fruit drink and was so sad I don’t have any really fresh mangos (like we had in Cabo)….but what do we have fresh picked off the tree? Peaches. Thanks. This sounds perfect!

  34. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says:

    Isn’t it fun to go back and update old posts? This margarita looks so good for summer, Sues! I love the peach flavor. So refreshing and just what I want to be sipping on!

  35. Kelsie | the itsy-bitsy kitchen says:

    This looks like summer in a glass! So delicious :). Schnapps of any flavor remind me of college, and not usually in a good way!

  36. Dawn - Girl Heart Food says:

    High five for using fresh peach! I love margaritas and this would be perfect to sip on while on the back deck this summer! P.S. we are lacking sunshine too – so cold here…brrrrrrrr

  37. Pam says:

    It looks beautiful, refreshing, and delicious! I love margaritas.

  38. Juliana says:

    Wow Sues…it not 12 PM and I would love to have a glass of this margarita…looks so pretty and so delicious! Thanks for the recipe…
    Have a wonderful week ahead 🙂

  39. Karen (Back Road Journal) says:

    I just bought a big bag of peaches today for my breakfasts, I think breakfast may have to wait. 😀

  43. Tandy I Lavender and Lime says:

    I also used my mobile phone camera when I started. The photos are terrible, with half of them capturing my stove as well. Great margarita recipe Sues.

  44. Katherine | Love In My Oven says:

    Haha, I laughed at your description of living downtown. It’s got it’s charm, but I’m definitely happy to be in the ‘burbs now (especially with kids). Congrats on the upcoming wedding! I hope you get to toast with one of these 🙂 Cheers!

  45. Victoria says:

    Oh man, these look so refreshing! I absolutely love peaches, and am so excited for them to be in season (soon!). I will definitely be making your margaritas when the time comes!

  46. Annie @ The Garlic Diaries says:

    This margarita looks so refreshing and flavorful, Sues! My mouth is watering just looking at it. And I love the fact that you use fresh peaches instead of peach schnapps. So fun that you are going back and updating new posts! I’m sure it’s a trip down memory lane for sure!

  47. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic says:

    Definitely sunshine in a glass! I was thinking of re-doing old recipes too to update them with better photos and better instructions haha. I also am not a fan of peach schnapps but would be a big fan of this frozen margarita!

  48. Kelly says:

    Congrats on 5 years! This margarita is the perfect way to celebrate! It looks so refreshing and perfect for summer!
