Margarita cantaloupe slushy

We're going to make a “big people” slushy! You know them from those large containers in which sweet ice cream rotates in various colors. Very sweet and full of an awful lot of dyes…. Although we make a cocktail, so we also use alcohol, this is a slightly better version if I do say so myself. The color comes from fresh fruit and we don't use any crazy ingredients. This Margarita cantaloupe slushy cocktail can also be made in a virgin version! In fact, an alcohol-free version can be found for every kind of spirits these days.

Margarita cantaloupe slushy

A Margarita is a classic cocktail consisting of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice. Usually the rim of the glass is sprinkled with salt and a slice of lime is hung on it. It is a fresh and summery cocktail that originally comes from Mexico. There is a lot to be found about the origin of the Margarita, there are several people who claim that they were the first to use the drink. In any case, this version is a Francine Original! I really enjoy mixing and making beautiful drinks. And besides that, the photos are always very nice. With this Margarita cantaloupe slushy I hope to inspire you to make a cocktail at home. Making it is done in no time, so it certainly doesn't have to be that.
