Fresh Strawberry Margarita Recipe:
Beverage and Cocktails,
Yields: 2 to 3 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Lots of ice
(about 1 to 2 cups ice cubes)*
8 to 10 fresh ripe
4 ounces good-quality tequila
1 1/2 ounces fresh-squeezed
1 1/2 ounces Triple Sec
Simple Syrup, optional
salt or sugar, for rimming the glass
Lime slices garnish
* How much ice you use depends on your taste. You may want to experiment with the ice.
** 4 ounces frozen sliced
strawberries in syrup (partially thawed) may be substituted in place of the fresh strawberries.
Using frozen strawberries (with syrup), will provide a sweeter margarita.
Wash, dry, and hull the strawberries.
In a blender, add the ice. Fill the blender half-full with ice
(the ice must be the first thing the blender grinds up).
After grinding up the ice, add the strawberries, tequila, lime juice, and Tripe Sec; blend until smooth. At
this point, have a little taste. Some people like to slightly sweeten up the Strawberry Margarita a little more. If you do, add a little
Simple Syrup to taste.
Pour into the Margarita Glasses rimmed with either coarse salt, Margarita Salt, or coarse sugar.
To create a salt or sugar-rimmed glass, take a lime wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it
is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass into coarse salt or sugar.
Garnish with a whole strawberry and a lime slice (optional).
Makes 2 to 3 serving.
Non-Alcoholic Version: Omit tequila and Triple Sec.
Add an additional squeeze of lime juice.
