Game Day Gatorade Margaritas

Game Day Gatorade Margaritas

Hydrate alongside your favorite sports teams with thirst-quenching Gatorade Margaritas. Pair this game day drink with other football snacks for a delicious game day spread.

Best Gatorade Flavors

You may be slightly skeptical at first if the last time you had Gatorade was back when the only choices available were red, blue, and orange. Product development has come a long way and Gatorade flavors now include varieties such as Strawberry Watermelon and Frost Tropical Mango. For this recipe, I highly recommend Lime Cucumber!

Game Day Gatorade Margaritas Recipe

This game day drink recipe is simple – mix 3 parts Gatorade to 1 part tequila. Squeeze in fresh lime to taste and add ice. For the rims, swap out salt and use a chili lime seasoning instead for a fun twist.

Note: If you choose to go with a light or low-calorie Gatorade, you may want to add simple syrup to add back a little sweetness.

The flavors pictured above are:

  • Watermelon Citrus (tastes like a watermelon Jolly Rancher)
  • Cucumber Lime (AMAZING and refreshing – definitely my favorite)
  • Cool Blue (classic and delicious)
Yield: 6 servings
