If you love margaritas and frozen pies, you’re going to love this Magic Margarita Pie. It’s quick to put together and so smooth, creamy and delicious.
I came across this recipe for Magic Margarita Pie in my Mother-In-Law’s recipe box. I knew it had to come from a friend or publication because this isn’t something she would have developed, but I didn’t find this version. This Margarita Pie has more booze in it than the ones that I was able to find. Maybe that’s why it’s called Magic Margarita Pie!
Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo? It’s one of our favorite celebrations, which is funny because it’s a Mexican holiday, not an American holiday, but you know how we are when there is an opportunity to celebrate right? I think it’s one of my favorites because I love Mexican food and beverages.
You don’t need a celebration to make this pie. It’s perfectly luscious for anytime, especially in those warm days where a frozen dessert is so refreshing. I just love the flavors of the salty-sweet pretzel crust in contrast to the creamy boozy filling. You don’t need a celebration but a slice is a party all by itself.
