Yes, yes I know. Every food blogger imaginable is posting pumpkin spice lattes, and warm cocoa but I’m over here posting frozen margaritas. I HAVE NO SHAME.
Frankly it could be -10 degrees outside and I’d still be whipping up a batch of frozen margaritas on a random wednesday night but I probably wouldn’t be blogging about them. BUT I know for most of you people it’s still in the high 80’s and I have to believe you’d rather have a frozen cocktail than a pumpkin spiced caramel apple toasted marshmallow hot chocolate…correct?
So the idea for this little concoction came the other day when I picked up a bag of cotton candy grapes. I’ll admit I was skeptical that they actually tasted like cotton candy so as soon as I checked out I popped one in my mouth. HOLY CRAP! They taste just like cotton candy.
Then I suggested we add tequila and make a fun grown up snow cone. Obviously.
They were fantastic! They taste just like I imagine a cotton candy snow cone would taste like if you dumped some tequila in it. Honest moment here, why didn’t I think of that in college when I didn’t care about artificial flavors, corn syrup, and artificial colors??? I guess I’m destined to just make my own which is A-OK with me if they taste like this!

Where can you find those grapes, I’m in Houston, Tx. Also what would the sugar content be for those od us that have to limit and watch.
Hi Cathy! I found them at my local Fresh Market but I believe they are out of season now. As the drink has no added sugar it would depend on how many grapes you use. I’m not aware of the sugar content of the grapes but your package may have that information listed on it.
I love the idea of this margarita. I’ve got to get some cotton candy grapes.
