This strawberry margarita is bursting with fresh strawberries and is oh so refreshing!
Fresh Strawberries Make an Amazing Strawberry Margarita!
There is only one drink that ties for first place with my beloved gin and tonic and that is a margarita. When it comes to margaritas, I have always been about simplicity. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. A classic simple margarita made with the finest ingredients that you can afford is pure joy. However, the other day, I was looking in my fridge at the 3 containers of strawberries that I had purchased. The season is so fleeting, I buy them whenever I see organic on sale. I’ve been using them in cocktails like my Strawberry Rosè Sangria, The Best Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri, and Strawberry Mojitos. While those were all amazing, I needed to branch out. How about a strawberry margarita?! I wanted one of the rocks, not frozen. I found the perfect simple Strawberry Margarita recipe at Pop Sugar.
This was the perfect recipe. First of all, it makes a pitcher, which in my opinion is how all margaritas should be served. The recipe was also so simple and perfect – a basic margarita with the addition of some fresh strawberries. It was quick, easy and so refreshing. I’m going to keep this same basic formula and try substituting other fruits for the strawberries. How about a pineapple margarita? Or raspberry margarita? Or a pineapple raspberry margarita?! See, the ideas are endless.
- 1 cup of cored, quartered strawberries
- 1 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup orange liqueur
- juice of two limes
- lime wedges
- Place the strawberries, tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Fill a pitcher with ice and pour blended margaritas in it and stir to combine.
- Rub the rim of margarita glasses with a lime wedges and dip into margarita salt. Divided margaritas into salt rimmed glasses and garnish with a lime wedge and a fresh strawberry.
