Tips for Making the Best Strawberry Margarita Recipe

The Strawberry Margarita is certainly a nice recipe to cool down hot days, but if you want to elevate it to a premium cocktail just follow these simple steps:

  • Elevate your cocktail with a salt rim. This is a personal preference and entirely up to you. Use a salt, sugar (or a mix of the two), or Margarita mix.
  • How to rim your glass. Run a lime wedge around the upper outer rim of your glasses. Roll it into the Margarita salt mixture and set aside.
  • Adjust to your preference. Making your drinks gives you complete control over the flavor profile. Like it double? Add more tequila. Prefer your Strawberry Margarita drink a little sweeter? Add more honey. A single batch of this recipe yields about 4-5 Strawberry Margarita cocktails. Feel free to adjust the number of ingredients up or down to make the desired number of servings.
  • Make these Strawberry Margaritas ahead of time. To make the Margarita ahead of time, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Store in the refrigerator for up to one day if serving on the rocks, or in the freezer if serving frozen.

What Tequila is Best for Strawberry Margaritas?

This Strawberry Margarita recipe can be made with any tequila you like, but keep these things in mind:

  • Invest in a decent bottle of tequila: The quality of the booze determines the cocktail’s flavor. That said, look for a mid-range tequila, preferably one that is 100% agave.
  • Blanco or Reposado, whichever works for you: Margaritas made with reposado tequila are richer and more complex due to the addition of aged tequila.

For this delicious, frosty Margarita, we recommend tequila Blanco! Strawberries have a lot of flavor and texture; therefore, they require less nuance in the recipe.

Variations of the Strawberry Margarita Recipe

Once you master the classic recipe, you can also opt for other versions of the cocktail

  • Can’t find any fresh strawberries? Use them frozen instead. Thaw to make on the rock version.
  • Serving this Strawberry Margarita fusion frozen? It’s best to use frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones to make the cocktail exceptionally slushy without adding excessive ice and risk watering down the flavor.
  • Serving on the rocks? For an ideal fresh Strawberry Margarita with the least dilution possible, use the biggest ice cubes you can find.
  • Spice it up! You may be surprised to learn that adding a hint of heat to strawberries improves their flavor. Pepper reduces the harshness of strawberries while also bringing out their sweetness, practically turning them into candy. Additionally, it imparts a delicious, moderately spicy aftertaste to the cocktail.
  • Don’t have any honey? You can use agave syrup, simple syrup, granulated sugar or homemade strawberry syrup.

Strawberry syrup DIY recipe

  1. Add 1 ½ cups sliced strawberries and 4 cups water in a saucepan and bring the mix to a boil.
  2. Lower the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  3. Skim any foam that forms at the top.
  4. Strain the strawberry liquid and discard the solids.
  5. Add 2 cups sugar and bring back to a boil for about 5 minutes, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  6. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  7. Pour into an airtight glass container and refrigerate (should last for a few weeks).

Use the syrup in this Strawberry Margarita recipe, add it to mocktails, or pour it over pancakes and waffles!
