How to Use Egg Whites in Margaritas. Most margarita lovers enjoy trying out new ingredients in their favorite drink. Mangoes, pineapples and even avocados are now common additions to the classic margarita. For a real change, try adding egg whites to your next batch of margaritas. The use of egg whites does not add flavor like the fruits that are commonly mixed into a standard margarita. Egg whites change the texture of the margarita, making it a creamy frothy beverage that is similar to an Orange Julius. The result is a beverage that is decadent enough to be a dessert.
Things You'll Need
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup club soda
- 1 egg white
- 1 pint lime juice (bottled)
- 5 oz. tequila
- 2 oz. triple sec
- 1 cup ice (crushed)
- Lime wedges
- Margarita salt
Combine the sugar, water, club soda, egg white, lime juice, tequila and triple sec in a blender.
Add ice to the mixture and blend until the margaritas are smooth and free of ice chunks.
Use a lime wedge to moisten the rims of two serving glasses and dip the glasses into salt. Make sure the salt evenly coats the rim of each glass for proper serving. The guests should taste the salt with each sip.
Pour the frozen mixture into the salted glasses.
Garnish with a lime wedge to add color before serving.
