When strawberries are in season, you can never have too many strawberry cocktails! Instead of mixing the sweet red berries with vodka or gin, why not combine them with tequila for a vibrant twist on the margarita?
This easy recipe is a potent crowd-pleaser that's sure to get the conversation flowing. It may seem like a lot of work to haul out the blender, but trust me, this drink is worth it. It's refreshing and fruity, but salty and strong at the same time: perfection in a glass! Start your party right with strawberry margaritas.
For an extra punch of color and flavor, reserve the juiced limes and add them back into the pitcher before serving.
For the cocktail:
1/2 of a pint of strawberries
1 cup tequila
1/2 cup orange liqueur
4 limes, juiced
For the garnish:
1 lime, cut into wedges
- In a blender, blend strawberries, tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice.
- Fill a pitcher with ice and pour in the blended margarita. Stir well to ensure that the mixture is combined.
- Prepare the glasses by rubbing each rim with a lime wedge. Fill a small plate with salt and dip the wet rim of the glass in the salt. Divide margarita into the salted glasses, and garnish each glass with a strawberry and lime wedge. Enjoy immediately!
