I was so excited for this recipe and it did not disappoint. I decided to cut the recipe into fourths to only make one margarita for myself. I found a local ice cream shop that offers real Dole Whip and waited until their flavor of the week was orange. Because I had the Dole Whip fresh and the correct consistency, I decided to omit the ice from my recipe to try and keep that perfect soft serve. This did make it a little thinner than I would’ve liked, so I think in the future I would either add the ice, or freeze the Dole Whip a little before adding it to the blender.
While I did use silver tequila, it was bottom shelf tequila. When I make this in the future, I will definitely splurge a little to use a higher quality tequila. That would have given the beverage an overall smoother flavor.
