Easy Fresh Strawberry Margarita – the ultimate summer drink made in a blender with just a few ingredients.

Easy Fresh Strawberry Margarita




– 10 oz fresh ripe strawberries — , washed, hulled and sliced – 1/2 cup silver tequila – 2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice – 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey – 1/4 cup orange liqueur such as Triple Sec or Cointreau — ( I often like to use Grand Marnier instead, which is a blend of Triple Sec and cognac. This makes the drink stronger) – kosher salt for the rim of the glass – ice

Step 1

Place strawberries, tequila, lime juice, agave nectar (honey) and orange liqueur in a blender. Pulse a few times, until smooth. Let the mixture rest for 3-5 minutes. Using a spoon, remove all the foam on top. Taste and add more tequila, lime juice or sweetener, if needed.

Step 2

If you are serving in salt-rimmed glasses - run a slice of lime around the top of each glass. Dip the top of the glass in salt. (If you can not get the salt to stick - in a shallow bowl pour some lime, lemon juice or water. Dip the glass, upside down in it and then dip it in salt.

Step 3

Fill glasses with ice and pour Margarita mixture on top. Garnish with a strawberry or lime wedge.
