Strawberry Margarita Recipe

Strawberry Margarita
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: About 6 (8-ounce) drinks

Frozen margaritas dispensed from churning machines usually taste like syrupy convenience store slushies with a shot of bottom-shelf tequila thrown in. Our recipe blends real strawberries, quality tequila, simple syrup, fresh-squeezed lime juice, triple sec, ice, and a touch of salt to really bring out all the flavors. In just a few minutes you’ll have a fresh-tasting, balanced pitcher of frozen margaritas that can serve a Cinco de Mayo crowd or your backyard barbecue.
