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
- Orange Liqueur
- Orange Juice
- Lime Juice
- 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.
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!
