A Strawberry Margarita Recipe


Near the beginning of “Stay at Home”, my friend Caroline dropped off a homemade Strawberry Margarita and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it! It was sweet, without being overly sweet, and I knew I wanted to try to make one myself when strawberries came into season.

Making strawberry syrup is very simple, but there are a few methods on how to do it. For my strawberry syrup I brought 4 cups of water and 2 lbs of strawberries to a boil, and then turned it down to a simmer for 20 minutes. Afterwards, I removed and discarded the pale, colorless berries and added 2 cups of sugar to the pot, returned it to a boil, then let it simmer for 5 minutes. Caroline shared that she did that entire process in one step, so I need to try her method next. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.

My strawberry syrup was good, but not as sweet as I wanted it to be, so I ended up adding a cup of sugar to the syrup, boiled again, simmered for 5 minutes, and then left it at that.

Strawberry Margarita // serves 1 (I only ever make these individually so I do not have measurements for a pitcher at this time) 

2 oz Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila

1 oz Grand Marnier Liqueur

1/4 cup homemade strawberry syrup (this can be adjusted based on your desired sweetness!)

2 oz lime juice

Mix together, pour into a glass of ice with a salted rim!

If you don’t have this citrus juicer yet, I urge you to get it! It makes squeezing lemons and limes so easy and efficient!

    Looks yummy! To make the simple syrup, you said you “put 4 cups and 2lbs of strawberries” , what is the 4 cups? Is it water?
