Last night, my partner developed a strong desire for a strawberry margarita…but not just any strawberry margarita, she wanted one “like at the Mexican restaurant.” What a request. I have no idea what the specific protocol is at the local Mexican establishment, but I thought I’d give it a shot. Here’s the recipe I came up with for the official Boozeblogger “Like at the Mexican restaurant” Strawberry Margarita. Clearly, the idea here isn’t to make something classy, but just a nice drink to make when your significant other demands it of you.
This recipe could probably make margaritas for around four people…or two people who want to get a little tipsy. First, you need a blender capable of crushing ice, pretty much any blender with an option called “pulse” can crush ice like a motherfucker. Crush up about 2 cups of ice.
After crushing the ice, add the following to the blender
2 cups crushed ice
1 cup tequila (it’s not everyday you measure out tequila in cups)
3 oz triple sec
a few handfuls of strawberries (you could use frozen or fresh, it probably doesn’t matter)
a little sugar or agave nectar
squeeze in some lime juice
Then, blend the shit out of that.
You could serve your margaritas in any number of glasses. If you are actually going to split the drinks between 4 people, you could put them in rocks glass, but since my goal was to get a little crunk, I just poured them in some big mason jars and then cut a slice of lime as a garnish.
