Strawberry Margaritas: fresh strawberries + the makings of a great margarita = party time!
Have I ever told you my favorite cocktail is a strawberry margarita? Yep, it’s my favorite drink in the whole wide world. It’s amazing I have not posted about this strawberry margarita yet. I’m not sure how I missed this.
Not to worry, I’m making up for it now. You know, I don’t drink much, but I do love a cocktail every once in awhile. If you never make cocktails at home, don’t be scared, all you really need is a blender. Margaritas are usually made with tequila and triple sec. I love plain margaritas too, but there’s just something special about a strawberry margarita. The color is gorgeous and it’s a bit sweeter just like I like it.
So this being Memorial weekend in the US, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a great cocktail, so let’s make some strawberry margaritas!
- 3 cups fresh strawberries washed and stems removed
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1/4 cup lime juice freshly squeezed
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- pinch of salt
- 3 cups of ice
Place all ingredients except the ice in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Add the ice and continue blending on high until smooth.
