Fresh Strawberry Margarita {She Made/Ella Hace}

My good friend girlichef and I are in the cocina once again for She Made/Ella Hace. This month it's all about strawberries. Heather (girlichef) is serving up not one, but TWO sweet strawberry recipes: Strawberry Atole + Strawberry Atole Paletas. (Be sure to head on over to Heather's blog to check out her mouth watering recipes.) And I whipped up these delightful Strawberry Margaritas, because who doesn't love a good margarita? These Strawberry Margaritas are sweet, refreshing and taste like summer in a glass.

Fresh Strawberry Margaritas -

Fresh Strawberry Margarita

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, stemmed and roughly chopped 
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup tequila reposado  
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur 
  • 2 tablespoon powdered chile & lime seasoning (I use Tajin)
  • Ice 

In a medium bowl combine the chopped strawberries with the granulated sugar; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 10 to 15 minutes. (This allows the strawberries to release their juices and form a sweet syrup.)

Moisten rims of 4 glasses with lime wedges. Dip moistened rims in powdered chile & lime seasoning or coarse salt. Chill glasses in freezer until ready to serve.

Puree the strawberries and the syrup that has formed along with the fresh lime juice in a blender or food proccessor until smooth. Strain strawberry puree into a pitcher. Pour in tequila and orange liqueur. Stir gently to combine. Serve over ice in prepared glasses. ¡Salud!
