What is in a Margarita?
A traditional margarita is a cocktail made of tequila, lime juice, and a citrus liqueur such as triple sec or cointreau. It’s usually shaken with ice, poured over ice, and served in a glass with a salty rim. YUM. You can learn more about the origin of margaritas here!
How to Make a Fresh Strawberry Margarita
Now, what about a strawberry margarita? This version has FRESH strawberries for big strawberry flavor! Then we add maple syrup for natural sweetness, lime juice for tartness + classic margarita vibes, ice for the perfect texture, and of course tequila. Time to blend!
After blending, you can taste and adjust if desired. Too sweet? More lime juice! Too tart? More maple syrup! Transfer to a glass to enjoy straight up, or serve over ice (our preference!). A salted rim and garnish of lime and strawberry make it feel extra festive!
We hope you LOVE this strawberry margarita! It’s:
& SO delicious!
This margarita is perfect for fresh strawberry season or when you’re craving a vibrant, refreshing drink on a hot day. It would also be a fun addition to a taco party and works well as a batch drink for groups! Can we get an invite?
