I love fruity margaritas, but not if they taste like syrup like they sometimes do at bars. I want to taste the tequila but not be overwhelmed by it.
Luckily, they’re so easy to make yourself it’s absurd that this isn’t a regular Friday night thing. Let’s make that our thing, shall we?
They’ll come together in 3 minutes and you can keep the strawberries in the freezer indefinitely, so you probably got everything you need already on hand!
Frozen strawberry margaritas make for the perfect little pick me up on a hot day. Want to sit outside with a book? Got a friend coming over last minute? Headed for a day at the lake/pool/beach? These are just what you need.
As usual, real lime juice is crucial here – don’t use the bottled stuff. You’ll taste it. And simple syrup is crazy easy to make yourself, so don’t waste your money on the store-bought stuff.
If you have fresh strawberries, you can sub them in for frozen and double the ice. Go easy on the simple syrup, the amount will change based on the sweetness of the strawberries.
You can substitute in just about any fruits here, just make sure they’re actually flavorful. Sometimes frozen fruit tastes bland to me, so it makes for boring drinks.
There’s not much to say here – just blend and sip! Salted rims and fun cocktail glasses are encouraged but optional.
Frozen Strawberry Margaritas
- 8 oz frozen strawberries
- 2 1/2 Tbsp simple syrup
- 4 oz tequila
- 1 oz triple sec
- 1 cup ice
- 1 1/2 oz lime juice (2-3 limes)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blitz on high until smooth.
- Run a lime slice around the edge of the glasses and dip in a shallow bowl of salt.
That’s all you need for frozen strawberry margaritas! Is it Friday yet?
Fruity margaritas not your thing? Try the classic version, but beware – they’re strong.
