Fresh Peach Margaritas

The summer kicked off with a blast of heat and humidity. Sipping on chilled Fresh Peach Margaritas is a most delightful way to cool down on a sultry July evening. 

Sweet, fresh peaches are a highlight of summer. This Peach Cocktail has all the loveliness you’d expect in a margarita, except with the addition of sweetened peach puree. They’re incredibly delicious!!

We have a terrific produce stand down the street. Their tender sweet corn and ripe, juicy peaches are my two favorite summer foods. Right now, we’re savoring fresh Georgia peaches, then we’ll get an east coast crop before local Indiana and Michigan peaches are harvested. I set aside some of this luscious fruit for a signature cocktail.

Making the Best Margaritas

Margaritas aren’t complicated, but here are some tips for making perfect peach margaritas!

  • For the best results, you must start with peak of the season fruit. If your peaches aren’t ripe and flavorful, your margaritas will be lackluster.
  • PRO-Tip: Decent fresh peaches are not always available, so you could definitely try making these with canned peaches. Use 4 peach halves instead of the two fresh peaches. Peaches are canned at their prime, so the flavor should be wonderful, too. If your peaches are covered in a heavy syrup, you may want to rinse them off before you puree.
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice is imperative, too. Don’t even think of buying anything in a bottle.
  • To balance the tart lime, use a top notch sweetener, I love an organic sugar.
  • For a beautiful presentation, garnish your glass with a thin slice of lime or peach. I use a knife to make a cut from the rind or peel to the middle of the slice and use that opening to hook the fruit on the cup.
  • If you like some added bling, dip the rim of your glass into lime juice, then into sugar (or salt if that’s your preference).

More Margaritas You’ll Love:

I first had these Beer Margaritas on Memorial Day years ago! I’m not a beer drinker, but I became an instant fan. They’re SO easy to make, too! These Fizzy Grapefruit Margarita from Well Plated are a fun alternative to the classic, but a little sparkle in every sip. And for a spring Margarita, these Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita from Nutmeg Nanny look delicious! And if you haven’t tried, St. Germain, an elderflower liqueur, you’ll see why it’s so popular with your first sip of  an Elderflower Margarita from Garnish with Lemon.

Fresh Peach Margaritas

A summery twist on the classic Margarita made with juicy fresh peaches

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 2 servings


  • 1/2 cup fresh peach puree (about 2 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, cut into pieces, and pureed in a blender or food processor)
  • 1-2 tablespoons Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1-ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce of Grand Marnier (or your favorite orange liqueur)
  • Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar for sugar rims on glasses
  • Lime slices and/or peach slices to garnish, optional


  1. Whisk together peach puree and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Taste and add more sugar if needed. Whisk in the tequila, lime juice, and Grand Marnier. Taste and adjust to your preferences.
  2. Pour a bit of water onto a small flat plate. Sprinkle sugar over a second small plate. Dip the rim of the glasses into the water, then dip them into the sugar to make a sugar rim. Garnish margaritas with sliced fruit. Serve margaritas over ice.
  3. For a virgin peach spritzer, combine peach puree, sugar and then top the glass with cold club soda or lemon-lime soda. Makes one.


This recipe can be adapted to your liking. I tend to go light on the liquor, so taste first and tweak to your tastes. If your peaches aren't sweet enough, you may need to add more sugar.

  42. Liz, Mike would love this~! He likes blended (with ice crushed into the margarita). I’m assuming you jut add a little more of everything and add the ice cubes to the blender? Thank you for posting this~!

    • diana, think I’d freeze some peach puree in ice cube trays. Then have all the other ingredients icy cold and blend. That way you wouldn’t dilute the flavors. I hope Mike likes these!!
