Strawberry Margarita Ingredients

  • Strawberries: For the best results, use fresh, ripe strawberries! These margaritas taste their finest when made with fresh juice. Berries are at their peak in the spring and summer, so stock up on them while you can!
  • Tequila: The secret to a delicious Margarita lies in the quality of tequila. So, whether you prefer silver or reposado tequila in your Margaritas, choose a bottle of high quality, ideally made entirely of agave.
  • Orange liqueur: This extra dash of liqueur not only raises the alcohol content of the cocktail but also imparts a fruity flavor that pairs nicely with the fresh berries.
  • Sweetener: Simple syrup, honey, agave nectar are all sweeteners you can use to balance the tartness and add a hint of sweetness. In this recipe, strawberry simple syrup (recipe below) works wonders.
  • Lime juice: Use freshly squeezed lime juice rather than concentrated store-bought juice! Not only will the results be undeniably better as a result of the fresh flavor, but you will also avoid any preservatives or additives in your drink.
