Frozen Strawberry Margarita Directions

  • Use frozen strawberries that are slightly thawed or add ice to the blender with the strawberries, tequila, triple sec, lime juice and simple syrup. 
  • If you use sweetened frozen strawberries, you can skip the simple syrup.

How to Make Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water. Heat water almost to boiling and stir in sugar. Allow mixture to cool before using for drinks. Store in a mason jar for up to 3 weeks.

What’s the Difference between a Strawberry Margarita and a Strawberry Daiquiri?

Both cocktails are made with strawberries and lime and are blended. Margaritas are made with tequila and daiquiris are made with rum. Both are delicious!  

Large Batch Margaritas

  • Sometimes you need a big batch of Margaritas to serve a crowd. No one likes to play bartender for the entire party. This recipe serves two just double as needed. 
  • Blend strawberries, lime juice and simple syrup together and then stir in tequila and triple sec when you stir it into the pitcher.
