Give me a margarita and some queso and I’m one happy gal. This strawberry margarita recipe is super simple and puts my favorite Mexican restaurant to shame. It’s the perfect refreshing drink to sit back on the porch and enjoy some fresh air.
We made our margaritas with local strawberries we picked which made them taste even sweeter!
WHAT Y’ALL NEED
2 ounces Grand Marnier
1 1/2 ounces tequila
2 ounces lime juice
2 1/2 strawberry simple syrup
lime + strawberries for garnish
salt + sugar for the rim (optional)
Totally optional: Rim the top edge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in a mix of margarita salt + sugar. Fill the glass with ice.
In a cocktail shaker, mix together the tequila, Grand Marnier, strawberry simple syrup (see how to make syrup below) and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds.
Make the Strawberry Simple Syrup:
- Combine equal parts sugar and water.
- Bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve + turn off heat and let cool completely.
- Combine 1 cup simple syrup + 1 1/2 cups slices strawberries in a blender and blend until combined.
Pour over ice and squeeze in lime slices and add a few strawberries. Enjoy!
