Place all ingredients, except crushed ice, in an electric blender. Add crushed ice. Blend on high speed for at least 20 seconds, or until frappéd.

I created the Reverse Magic Hour as an homage to both Constantino Ribalaigua Vert's classic La Florida frozen daiquiris and Red and Hazel Williams' original Tequila Sunrise-flavored creation.
