Can you make margaritas with an immersion/stick blender? I don't have a normal blender and if this is doable, I'd rather just use this instead of going out and buying one or borrowing.

Jenn, we assume that you are asking this because you want to make frozen margaritas, with crushed ice. If so, then the answer is no, an immersion blender is going to have a hard time with ice. If you're absolutely determined to try, then bang the ice up into small chunks in a plastic bag, and blend it only after you've added the margarita liquid. But be careful; this could destroy your stick blender blade or motor. (It would be better to try this in a food processor.)
On the other hand, why not try a margarita with no crushed ice? Here are two excellent recipes:
• Spicy-Cool Blood Orange-Jalapeño Margaritas
• Margaritas To Make Men & Women Giggle
Readers, any thoughts?
