It may not be strawberry season for another month or so here in Maryland, but I’ve been seeing some gorgeous California strawberries in my grocery store. While I can’t wait for our local pick-you-own place down the road to open up, I just couldn’t resist picking up a carton. They smelled and looked too good to pass up!

Thanks to Shawnda, Annie, and Josie – I’ve totally become addicted to various fruit margaritas. What’s a girl to do when she’s got some gorgeous strawberries lying around? Mix them up with booze of course! They were out of this world good. I loved the sugar and salt combo on the rim, and the strawberry flavor is just overwhelming. It actually tastes like fresh strawberries. Imagine that!

I’ve made several batches in the past couple weeks, I just can’t get enough of them. Top of my list of favorite margarita so far! The strawberry syrup puree has been very handy to have hanging out in the fridge as well. I’ve used it to make strawberry milk for the boys, as well as make pink lemonade. If you do one thing this weekend, make these margaritas! Cheers.

    These ratios don’t seem right to me, more Triple Sec than tequila? No thanks.

      I feel that 1.5 ounces of tequila is a generous portion, per beverage. But, feel free to change the portions to suit your tastes.

    This looks very good. I’ve only made MARGARITAS
    from a mix. Thanks for the “from scratch” recipe.

      You do not need a mix for a margarita. These amounts work fine for me. Just three ingredients. No preservatives or artificial anything.

      2 oz. Tequila (100% agave)
      1 oz. Cointreau or triple sec
      juice of one lime (that’s the hardest part)

      shake with ice and strain.

      Change the proportions to suit your taste.

    FYI… I just made these with one change (I know, I know, people that change recipes are annoying lol, but this change was a must since I’m watching my calories) I substituted the sugar for truvia. You can buy the granulated kind and it works grate! No sugar added and way less calories.
    1 cup of sugar equals 4 tablespoons and 8 teaspoons of truvia (I hate math so I didn’t try to figure that out in cups lol).
