Why Make a Frozen Strawberry Margarita From Scratch?
You’ve probably enjoyed frozen margaritas at restaurants before. But making them at home is actually super easy—and so worth it! When you make these frozen strawberry margaritas at home, you get to use the best quality ingredients.
Plus, you’ll save money and get to indulge in a tasty drink right from the comfort of your own home. With only a few ingredients, this fresh, delicious drink is one you’ll keep wanting to make!
How To Make The Best Frozen Strawberry Margaritas
If you want to make the best frozen strawberry margaritas, you’ll need a few key tips!
First, make sure to choose a good tequila. Blanco tequila is a good one! Since strawberries are such a strong flavor, you won’t need the highest quality tequila.
Use fresh strawberries in the summer or grab frozen strawberries at the grocery store. If you use fresh strawberries, wash them thoroughly, and be sure to remove the stems. Frozen strawberries will already have those steps completed.
With frozen strawberries, you don’t have to let them thaw before blending up these drinks!
When you blend your frozen strawberry margaritas, you can choose how thick or thin you want it to be. For a thicker margarita, add extra ice. If it’s too thick, add a little more liquid to thin the mixture.
Here’s a bonus tip. Before finishing up your frozen strawberry margaritas, rub a lime wedge along the top of each glass. Then dip them into a shallow bowl filled with some coarse sugar before filling.
Choosing The Right Ingredients
When making frozen cocktails with fruit, 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!
For these frozen strawberry margaritas, you’ll also need an orange liqueur, such as Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or regular triple sec. Fresh lime juice pulls it all together.
Creative Ways To Switch Up Your Frozen Strawberry Margaritas
You can make these margaritas a little less strong by lowering the amount of tequila you include.
Try adding more berries for extra fruity flavor, or incorporate other fruits for a fun blend! Some ideas include banana, mango, or even raspberry. This lets you create a customized margarita just for you!
Another way to switch up these frozen strawberry margaritas is to make them shaken, instead.
You can use the same ingredients (and a slightly different process) to achieve this. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, muddle your strawberries, and add all of your other ingredients. Shake well and strain into a glass, then enjoy!
These delicious frozen strawberry margaritas are the perfect summertime cocktail. With fresh ingredients, these truly are refreshing and tasty! You’ll love making this recipe for Cinco de Mayo, throughout the summer, and even year-round with frozen strawberries.
