REFRESHING SUMMER DRINK! STRAWBERRY MARGARITAS!
Strawberry’s are super sweet this time of year and while they are at their peak of flavor you should take advantage of them. I do have a beautiful bowl of strawberries every day. I add them in Smoothies, salads, make salad dressing, mixed with yogurt, and pureed to pour over dairy-free ice cream! Today, however, I am going to share a recipe for Strawberry Margarita’s!!! 🙂 It’s super hot right now and this refreshing cold drink made without processed sugar will be most satisfying! For a special treat, I put up a recipe for the secret to the best guacamole!!! It’s up on the website that I posted on August 1st. Let’s do this!
2 to 4 servings
1 pound (16 ounces) of fresh strawberries, hulled. Pull out 4 strawberries for garnish
1 cup Don Julio tequila or Jose Cuervo
2/3 cup organic freshly-squeezed lime juice
1/3 cup agave syrup
1/4 Triple Sec
Margarita salt, to rim the glasses
1 lime sliced in rounds
In a blender add strawberries, tequila, lime juice, agave syrup and Triple Sec. Pulse until smooth. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes then skim off the foam on top. Taste and add a bit more sweetener if desired.
Take your Margarita glass and run a lime wedge around the top of the rim. Dip the top of the glass upside-down in a bowl of coarse margarita salt.
Fill up each glass about half full with ice, then pour the margarita mixture over and serve immediately.
Garnish with a strawberry and lime slice!
If you want to serve them frozen, add 2 to 3 cups of ice, (depending on how slushie you want it), to your blender with the strawberry margarita mixture, and pulse until smooth. Pour into glass, garnish and serve immediately.
