Margaritas. What would we do without them? They’re a summer staple. With so many flavor options, margaritas are perfect for any occasion. What if I told you that you can make a margarita without using any utensils at all? Just throw the ingredients into a big Ziplock bag, shake them up, and freeze. If you’re on a time crunch, pop the margs in the freezer for as long as possible, and serve them over ice. Even if they don’t get icy, that doesn’t mean they’re not the coolest drink you’ve ever made.

    Fill up the can again, with water this time. Dump it once, and fill it with water a second time. You’ll want the two cans full of water so it will get icy in the freezer and not too sweet.

    Zip up the Ziplock and squeeze as much air out of it as you can. Give the bag a shake to make sure there aren’t any solid chunks of limeade.
