Frozen Margarita Pie

This chilled dessert is sure to cool you down during warm summer days

No summer cookout is complete without dessert and this frozen margarita pie happens to be the perfect way to unwind and cool off on a hot summer’s day. All the sweetness you’d want in a treat with just a hint of your favorite tequila. This recipe can be made ahead of time, is easy to make, and even easier to enjoy. Cheers!

What You'll Need:

6 Tbsp. unsalted butter

10 graham crackers

3 Tbsp. sugar

½ tsp. kosher salt. divided

¾ cup chilled heavy cream

5 limes, divided

1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk

3 Tbsp. tequila blanco

The How To:

  1. Melt 6 Tbsp. butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Let cool slightly.
  2. Crumble 10 graham crackers into the bowl of a food processor. Add 3 Tbsp. sugar, ¼ tsp. salt, and melted butter to bowl and process until mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Transfer graham cracker mixture to a shallow 9″ pie pan. Using a spoon, press firmly into bottom and up the sides of the dish. Freeze 20 minutes.
  4. While the crust is in the freezer, whisk ¾ cup heavy cream in a medium bowl until cream begins to thicken to the point you see ripples and stiff peaks begin to form, 3–5 minutes.
  5. Cut 4 limes in half and juice into a fine-mesh sieve over a glass measuring cup (you should have about ½ cup juice). Pour lime juice into another medium bowl and whisk in 14 oz. condensed milk, 3 Tbsp. tequila, and remaining ¼ tsp. salt until smooth.
  6. Fold half of whipped cream into lime juice mixture, carefully folding under and over while turning the bowl. Add remaining whipped cream and continue to fold until no streaks remain.
  7. Remove pie pan from freezer and pour in filling. Use the back of a spoon to gently spread filling to edge of crust.
  8. Zest half of the remaining lime over pie.
  9. Freeze pie at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
  10. Enjoy!
