What is a Crown Peach Margarita?

A Crown peach margarita is a twist on the classic margarita cocktail. It still has a base of tequila, lime juice, and an orange liqueur like triple sec. However, tequila shares the spotlight with Crown Royal peach whisky for a fruity, summery twist!

You can serve it up on the rocks (like I am here), but also as a frozen blended concoction if you prefer.

I like to add some peach juice to reinforce the fruity flavor, but you can use other things like peach puree or syrup, or just skip it altogether and let the Crown provide the flavoring!

Recipe FAQs

Can I Use Store Bought Lime Juice?

Fresh lime juice is preferred for the best flavor, but you can use store bought bottled lime juice if needed.

Just make sure it’s 100% lime juice without any added sugars or preservatives.

Should I Use a Salt or Sugar Rim?

It depends on your preference. A salt rim provides a traditional margarita taste and balances the sweetness, while a sugar rim adds extra sweetness that complements the peach flavor.

I prefer the salt contrast with the peach for this particular margarita, but you can choose for your own tastes.

Can I Make a Frozen Crown Peach Margarita?

Yes, you can make a frozen Crown Peach Margarita by blending the ingredients with ice until smooth.

Start with about 1 cup of ice, and then adjust to achieve your desired consistency.

What Glass Should I Use for a Crown Peach Margarita?

A traditional margarita glass or a large rocks glass works well for serving a Crown Peach Margarita. Both allow for a salted or sugared rim and plenty of garnish.

You can also use a mason jar, martini glass, or pint glass if you don’t have one of the more traditional options.

How Can I Adjust the Sweetness of the Margarita?

You can adjust the sweetness by adding simple syrup, honey, or agave to taste. Start with 0.5 oz and add more if needed to suit your preference.

If the drink is too sweet, add additional lime juice to balance the sweetness, or use less juice overall.

How Strong Is a Crown Peach Margarita?

The strength of the margarita depends on the proportions of the ingredients. This recipe provides a well-balanced cocktail with a moderate alcohol content.

You can add more juice and less alcohol for a weaker drink, or more alcohol and less juice for a stronger drink. Make sure to keep the alcohol proportions the same when adjusting to keep the flavors balanced.

Can I Make a Non-Alcoholic Version?

Yes, you can create a mocktail version by omitting the alcohol. Use more peach juice or a peach-flavored sparkling water in place of the Crown and the tequila.

Use a non-alcoholic triple sec syrup, or substitute orange juice instead. The lime and peach juices can remain, and you can still adjust sweetness with agave or similar, if desired.

What Food Pairs Well with a Crown Peach Margarita?

Foods that pair well include Mexican dishes like tacos, nachos, and quesadillas.

The cocktail’s sweetness also complements spicy foods and grilled meats.

Crown Peach Margarita Recipe Tips

  • This peach margarita is medium strength as written, but you can add more alcohol (or less juice) if desired to make it stronger. Keep the liquors proportional to one another to preserve the flavor balance as you add more
  • To adjust the sweetness of the cocktail, add agave, simple syrup, or fresh peach puree for more sweetness. To reduce sweetness, add more lime juice, or lower the amount of added peach juice. As written, I find it pretty middle of the road and just lightly sweet
