About the Margarita Bites

Fancy a bite-sized boozy tipple of tequila? Why not whisk up these deliciously moreish cheesecake bites, with fresh zesty lime, a sprinkle of salt and a slash of tequila - sure to have your guests sneaking back for seconds.

Simply make is 5 simple steps just like a traditional cheesecake but with a twist - why not try mixing things up with another of your favourite spirits such as flavoured gin and lemon?  

Love what fruity, boozy flavours bring to the party? Well you're just scratching the surface of our yummy infused bakes - whether gin is your thing, or something more creamy like Baileys, we've got the perfect recipe to get the party started. Our Mojito cupcakes bring the taste of Cuban to your kitchen, or our festive staple must be a generous dollop of Baileys custard

20Prep Time
A little effort


  1. Step 1:

    In a plastic bag (or using a food processor), crush the digestive biscuits finely with a rolling pin or a large spoon.

  2. Step 2:

    In a large bowl, combine digestive biscuits,  30g Icing sugar, salt, and melted butter, stirring until the mixture is the texture of wet sand. 

  3. Step 3:

    Put the biscuit mixture into a 9×9-inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Press the mixture down with your hands (or using the back of a spoon) to create an even layer. Freeze for 15 minutes.

  4. Step 4:

    In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, 125g icing sugar, tequila, lime juice, lime zest and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the biscuit base. Sprinkle salt on top of the cheesecake. Freeze for one hour.

  5. Step 5:

    Transfer the frozen cheesecake onto a cutting board, peeling away the parchment paper. With a sharp knife, slice 1-inch strips horizontally, then vertically, creating little cheesecake cubes (I did 6 rows/columns). Store in an airtight container in the freezer. Serve chilled straight from the freezer.
