Fresh Strawberry Margarita Recipe:

Recipe Type: Beverage and Cocktails, Strawberries
Yields: 2 to 3 servings
Prep time: 10 min


Ingredients:

baskets of fresh strawberriesLots of ice (about 1 to 2 cups ice cubes)*
8 to 10 fresh ripe strawberries**
4 ounces good-quality tequila
1 1/2 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 ounces Triple Sec
Simple Syrup, optional
Coarse salt or sugar, for rimming the glass
Whole fresh strawberries, garnish
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.


Preparation:

Wash, dry, and hull the strawberries.

In a blender (I used my Vitamix), add the ice. Fill the blender half-full with ice, as 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 stemmed 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.
