This was so good. I tried it out a few weeks ago with some of my friends...and they were the best margaritas ever. I can't wait until the summer, because they will taste even better!!

    Very tasty and refreshing drink.

    Randy May from OWENS CROSS ROADS, AL

    I made the margarita per the recipe and it was very good. Both my wife and I enjoyed them. This will be a great party drink with or without alcohol. Next time I will add about 2 tablespoons of lime juice to the ice cude tray for a tarter drink and use smaller ice cubes to eliminate ice lumps after blending. I was also thinking of trying raspberry sherbet as a test to see how it works, many possibilities! I highly recommend this recipe!

    I made this last night and I am surprised that it is every thing you would want in a margarita. Cool, refreshing and yet surprisingly thick.

    YUMMY!

    Laura Noun from Bolingbrook, IL

    As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to try it. I wasn't disappointed, it is YUMMY. If you have people who don't like alcohol or younger children, leave out the alcohol and it is wonderful virgin style.

    The best!

    Christy Quintero from Roswell, NM

    At first I didn't think it would taste good, I mean creamy. But I decided to try it and it is the best I have had. I also tried it with strawberry and it’s also great. Thank you for this, now my favorite, recipe!

    I made this already and it was a hit with all the friends!

    A little disappointed

    Cindy from

    I was a little disappointed in the overall taste of this drink. It was too much like a smoothie instead of a regular frozen drink. I tried to mix several other things with it to add flavor. I might try this again with lime juice added.

    Wedding Shower Hit

    mary snyder from LAKELAND, FL

    As a bartender for many years, when I came across this recipe for creamy Carnation Margaritas I just had to try it. I've used Carnation evaporated milk all my life. In my baking and cooking, my morning coffee and in feeding all five of my children when they were infants in place of commercial infant formulas. Talk about healthy, contented babies, mine were. Well anyway back to my original story. My niece will be married this July and we just had her bridal shower at my home. Knowing that she likes margaritas, but not a lot of tequila. I decided to try this recipe, and it was the hit of the party. The ladies loved it, with and without the tequila.T his recipe makes an awesome virgin margarita. Smooth and creamy and full of good taste.

    Margaritas

    Jennette Canteen from FLORENCE, SC

    The kids love it without out tequila of course. The adults raved about it with a little extra tequila. None of it was served with salt. Will make this again.

    Perfect "home party"drink

    Paula Mason from OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

    I served these for a friends' in-home sales party. Her guests, mostly older ladies, absolutely loved them. In fact the party soon centered around the Margaritas- not in a bad way! A request to share the recipe resulted in an experiment with other combinations, such as vanilla ice cream and rum; and a hands down favorite: Raspberry sorbet and peach brandy. Also no salt was ever requested for the Margaritas (I served it, it just wasn't needed). And I used fat free milk. The party attendees asked me to express much gratitude to this website. I'm sure they'll visit soon-we're thinking of having a recipe party next month
