How to make a Strawberry Margarita

This simple cocktail is made in a blender. You can make a frozen margarita or you can serve it over ice.

  • Strawberries – fresh or frozen
  • Sugar
  • Tequila
  • Orange Liqueur
  • Orange Juice
  • Lime Juice

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup silver tequila
  • 1/3 cup Grand Marnier 
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice I’ve used regular oranges and blood oranges
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice optional

On the rocks:

  • Combine strawberries, sugar, and a few tablespoons of water in a blender and blend until completely smooth. If necessary, add a little bit more water for a smoother texture.
  • Place a fine mesh sieve over a large glass measuring cup and pour the mixture through. Lightly press and stir the mixture through the sieve. Discard the solids. You should have around 1-1/2 cups of strawberry puree.
  • Add tequila, Grand Marnier, orange juice, lime juice, and 1 cup strawberry puree to the blender (no need to clean it out) and blend until combined. Taste and adjust ingredients as necessary. Serve in glasses filled with crushed ice.

Frozen:

  • Combine all ingredients along with approximately 2 cups of crushed ice in a blender. Process until smooth. Adjust the thickness by adding more ice. You might need a little bit more alcohol, since the ice will dilute it a bit. Serve immediately.

TIP: Since the ice will dilute the frozen margaritas, we recommend adding an extra splash of alcohol. Taste it as you prepare it and adjust accordingly. Enjoy!
