Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

One perk of making fruity frozen cocktails is that you don’t need to splurge on the most expensive liqueurs to achieve fantastic results. However, you will need a good quality 100% blue agave blanco (aka silver or white) tequila, an orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or regular triple sec, and some fresh lime juice to pull it all together.

Tip: If desired, rub a lime wedge along the top of each glass and dip into a shallow bowl filled with some coarse sugar before filling.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: n/a
Yields: 2 12-oz. servings (shown) or 4 6-oz. servings

Frozen Strawberry Margaritas Ingredients:

1 16-oz. bag frozen strawberries
¼ c. fresh lime juice (2 large limes)
4 oz. white tequila
2 oz. orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
Lime wheels and whole fresh strawberries, to garnish

Optional:
Ice or water, if needed, to adjust consistency after blending
Coarse sugar and lime wedges to coat glass rim

Directions:

1. Place half the frozen strawberries into a high-powered blender. Add lime juice, tequila, and orange-flavored liquor. Cover and blend on highest setting until smooth, approximately 1-2 minutes.

2. Remove vent cap on blender lid and add the remaining frozen strawberries one at a time while the blender is still running. Continue blending until all strawberries have been added and the mixture is completely smooth.

Note: For thicker margaritas, add some ice until desired consistency is reached. For thinner consistency, add a little water.
