Strawberry Margaritas

by Shauna :) May 06, 2014

It’s Cinco de Mayo so what could be better than a Strawberry Margarita! This cocktail goes wonderfully with our strawberry margarita cupcakes! When you pair a traditional margarita recipe with strawberry tequila puree and a little sparkling sugar, magical things happen!

Instead of the typical salt rim, we went with a rim of sparkling to match the cupcakes. Use a small slice of lime to wet the rim and dip each glass into a shallow bowl filled with sparkling sugar to coat. Next add the Strawberry Tequila Puree to the bottom of the glass. Keeping the cooled puree in a squeeze bottle worked great for adding to the cocktails and filling the cupcakes!

For the margaritas we made a pitcher with enough for 4 cocktails. When using fresh lime juice it will be a nice pale shade of green, but we wanted a little more contrast for the photos. Adding a drop of electric lime food coloring to the cocktail gave it just a little more color. Gently pour the margarita into the glasses over the strawberry puree to keep the fun layered look!

Strawberry Tequila Margaritas:

1 ½ parts tequila
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
1 part orange liquor
1 part Strawberry Tequila Puree

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice and orange liquor. Shake vigorously until well blended, then pour into a prepare margarita glass over the Strawberry Tequila Puree for a layered look. Garnish with fresh strawberries and lime slices to serve.

Strawberry Tequila Puree:

1 pound of strawberries, sliced
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp tequila

Place the strawberries and sugar in a small pan over medium heat. Once the strawberries begin to breakdown, add the tequila. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, then blend to remove any large pieces of strawberries. Cool complete before using.
