Just because you love to party and celebrate with friends doesn't mean you necessarily like the taste of alcohol. Tequila, rum, whiskey - their taste and burn can be unappealing to many people. However, that's where your frozen concoction maker comes into the mix. Combine these strong spirits with mixers and garnishes to make a cocktails that's as sweet as it is fun. 

If you have an insatiable sweet tooth, we have four recipes for you. Check out these delicious and sweet concoctions that you can make in your margarita machine. 

1. Barrakuda Margarita
Traditional margaritas are delicious. They're sweet, sour and salty. But if you have a true sweet tooth, you may want to replace the strong lime juice with something a little sweeter and even a little stronger. Try this recipe:

  • 3/4 ounces tequila
  • 3 ounces peach schnapps
  • 3 ounces blue curacao
  • 12 ounces sweet and sour mix
  • Ice
  • Your frozen concoction maker.

Fill your frozen concoction maker's ice reservoir to the fill line with ice then pour the remaining ingredients into the blender jar. Once everything is in the right place, all you need to do is hit the switch. The machine will blend you a perfect drink. Add some peach juice for extra sweetness and garnish with a fresh peach wedge.

Try this sweet drink. Try this sweet drink.
