Strawberry Margarita Recipe
A refreshing strawberry margarita recipe! It’s made with a strawberry simple syrup and fresh muddled strawberries. Perfect for spring and summer!
Servings: 1 Cocktail
- 5 Strawberries Cut in half
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 1 ounce strawberry simple syrup
- 1/2 ounce cointreau
- 2 strawberries
Strawberry Simple Syrup
In a small saucepan combine equal parts sugar and water and 5 fresh strawberries sliced in half.
Bring to a boil, then let simmer for about 5 minutes. Muddle the strawberries the sugar mixture once they’re tender. Don’t boil or cook too long or the mixture will be thick, making the margarita texture too thick.
Then, strain through a mesh strainer into a heatproof jar or container. Muddle the strawberries on the mesh strainer to get the flavor out.
Next, in a cocktail shaker muddle two fresh strawberries in the bottom. Then add in tequila, lime juice, strawberry simple syrup, cointreau and a handful of ice.
Shake vigorously for 30 seconds to dilute the ingredients and get the ingredients nice and cold.
Prepare your margarita glasses by wetting the rim with water then dipping them into a plate of sugar (we prefer for strawberry margaritas) or salt.
Fill the prepared glass with ice and then strain the margarita into the glass.
If you prefer the cocktail to be even more diluted, add a dash of sparkling water over the top!
Don't cook the simple syrup too long as you don't want a thick consistency.
Add more lime or tequila if you prefer.
Rim the glass with salt or sugar. We prefer sugar for this margarita.
Substitute cointreau for triple sec or fresh orange juice.
Add a splash of sparkling water if you want to dilute the cocktail even more.
