Strawberry Margarita; this recipe was made for those fancy single serve blenders and those late night too long work days packed with more than enough stress. Sit back and relax.
What makes a Strawberry Margarita?
Traditionally, a margarita consists of tequila, orange liqueur (triple sec) and lime juice. Nowadays, every grocery store has bottles of pre-made margarita mix on the shelf, just add tequila and shake. Serve it on the rocks, strained, or frozen. from salt on the rim of a margarita glass, to a pint glass clinking with ice cubes. The term margarita has also now evolved to include any tequila/fruit juice cocktail, and a myriad of varieties abound.
This recipe was made for you and those fancy single serve blenders and those late night too long work days packed with more than enough stress. Or maybe a quick drink to serve with individual flair at a small get together… Or just add more of everything, make it by the pitcher and shove some straws in there. Maybe just one straw. (Can you tell what kind of day I’m having… ignoring that this posts at 8 or so in the morning). As for those individual blenders I love mine, and use it for everything. I make myself a spinach smoothie almost every morning. Milk shakes are a breeze. And those peppers that I needed to puree for last weeks salpicon beef? Didn’t even get my nails dirty.
Knowing you can make this icy cold cocktail for yourself on the quick should be more than enough motivation for one of your own. But if you don’t have one, no worries, just bigger dishes to do 😉
PS – What’s that awesomeness in the background? Why carnitas of course! Check out the recipe on my new site GirlCarnivore!
