Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries washed and hulled
  • ~½ to ¾ cup sugar honey or your preferred sweetener, adjust to taste
  • 5-6 limes juiced, a little over ½ cup
  • ¼ to ½ cup of orange liqueur like Grand Marnier or Cointreau - adjust to taste
  • 1 cup to 1 ½ cups of your choice of tequila or strawberry-infused tequila adjust based on your preference
  • Ice

To garnish:

  • Salt or sugar for rims
  • Strawberries and lime slices to garnish

Instructions

  • Cut the strawberries in halves to help make blending easier.
  • Place the strawberries, lime juice and sugar or honey in a blender. Blend until you have a smooth puree.
  • Add the tequila and orange liqueur blend until well mixed, taste and adjust the liqueur if needed.
  • For on the rocks strawberry margaritas serve over ice.
  • To prepare frozen strawberry margaritas, add a good amount of ice to the blender mix. Blend until the ice is crushed and smooth, the margarita should have a slushy consistency. Adjust the amount of ice based on the consistency you prefer.

  • Serve the strawberry margaritas immediately garnished with slices of strawberry and/or lime slices.

Notes

For a non-alcoholic version or mocktail strawberry margarita leave out the tequila/orange liqueur and you will have a refreshing strawberry limeade drink or slushy.
