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 after searching 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.
We’ve been to Mexico several times, and have come to the conclusion that we categorize a lot of drinks and food as Mexican when they aren’t anywhere near it. I’ve never had a frozen margarita in Mexico but have enjoyed a few (too many) on the rocks. Regardless, I think this margarita pie recipe is perfect for our Americanized Cinco de Mayo or summer time or well, any time!
You don’t need a celebration to make this pie. It’s perfectly luscious for any time, 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 to serve this pie because a slice is like a party all by itself. It’s a party on a pie plate!

I just love the contrast of the pretzel crust that this frozen dessert pie sits in. However, there wouldn’t be any reason not to just buy an already made graham cracker crust or to pop a purchased pastry crust into the oven. Just make sure that it’s completely cooled before filling it.
Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
This Magic Margarita Pie really does taste like margaritas, and if you like margaritas, you’re going to love this pie! It is smooth and creamy, and the pretzel crust with that little bit of salt is the perfect combination.
