Light and refreshing describes this no-bake Frozen Margarita Tart. You will love the creamy whipped texture with fresh lime juice, lime zest, triple sec, tequila mixture all piled into a salty pretzel crust.
Who's ready to start thinking about summer?? Me (as I'm raising my hand that you can't see!) We finally had a couple warm spring days that really got me in the mood for recipes that are really like cool man, cool. What would be better than enjoying a bite of this treat after a hot summer's day. It would also be a great dessert for a Cinco de Mayo celebration - it's a margarita but in frozen form. Even though I didn't try it, I'm also thinking this mixture would be perfect for making popsicles. The mixture overnight did get really hard even though there is some alcohol in it.
When I deciding too about how to photograph this tart, I remembered I had these fun plates from Crate and Barrel that I purchased several years ago. Yes, plates are one of my many weaknesses and when I saw these, I fell in love with the bright colors. It came with a big platter that had a cut lime imprint, dinner plates with lemon imprint and orange with an orange imprint. Just so fun. I think these really jazz up the dessert and scream summer.
I hope this Frozen Margarita Tart brightens your day.
