Fresh Strawberry Margarita Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 to 3 servings


Lots 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.



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).

Non-Alcoholic Version:  Omit tequila and Triple Sec. Add an additional squeeze of lime juice. 

Makes 2 to 3 serving
