Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner so it is time to get your margarita recipes ready. This is one holiday we can totally get behind and love any kind of themed cocktail! We love a good classic margarita, but also love adding a fun twist on the original. This frozen strawberry margarita recipe is simple to make at home and will certainly have you calling for another round.
Only 4 ingredients!
This easy to make frozen strawberry margarita only has 4 ingredients and can be made with any basic blender. Nothing fancy needed! Frozen limeade is used instead of margarita mix and frozen strawberries help give it a thick and frosty consistency. Using fresh strawberries would make this cocktail too watery, so stick with the frozen ones!
- 1 container frozen limeade concentrate
- 2 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- Combine all ingredients in blender
- Blend on medium speed until strawberries begin to break up
- Blend on high speed until margarita is smooth
- Garnish with fresh lime slices or strawberries
Make ahead and keep on hand
Because this frozen strawberry margarita recipe calls for frozen fruit, the ingredients can be kept on hand so you can whip up a pitcher anytime. You can also blend a batch ahead of time if you are having company and store in your freezer until you are ready to serve. This makes for the perfect pre-dinner cocktail with friends, especially as the temperatures begin to really warm up!
To salt or not to salt
The big debate for margarita drinkers everywhere is to salt or not. With regular margaritas we love the added flavor salt adds, but with a fruity twist like this we opt to leave the salt off. An option for a sweeter margarita like this is to rim your glasses with sugar for added sweetness!
