Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped strawberries*
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup silver tequila
  • 1/3 cup Grand Marnier or Cointreau
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice I've used regular oranges and blood oranges
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice optional

Instructions

On the rocks:

  • Combine strawberries, sugar, and a couple tablespoons of water in a blender and blend until completely smooth. Add a little bit more water, if necessary, to get it smooth (this will depend on how juicy your strawberries are).
  • Place a fine mesh sieve over a large glass measuring cup and pour the mixture through. Lightly press and stir the mixture through the sieve. Discard the solids. You should have around 1-1/2 cups of strawberry puree; you might not need all of it.
  • Add tequila, Grand Marnier, orange juice, lime juice, and 1 cup strawberry puree to the blender (no need to clean it out) and blend until combined. Taste and adjust ingredients as necessary. Serve in glasses filled with crushed ice.

Frozen:

  • Combine all ingredients along with approximately 2 cups of crushed ice in a blender. Process until smooth. Adjust the thickness by adding more ice. You might need a little bit more alcohol, since the ice will dilute it a bit. Serve immediately.

Notes

*If preparing your margarita on the rocks, use fresh strawberries or thawed frozen strawberries. If using frozen strawberries, I recommend measuring them before thawing.
*If preparing frozen margaritas, use frozen strawberries (still frozen).
Adjust all ingredients to suit your taste. This makes a mildly sweet margarita. If you want it stronger, increase the tequila or orange liqueur. If you want it sweeter, increase the syrup and/or orange juice.
To coat the rim of your glass in sugar or coarse salt: Rub the rim of the glass with a lime wedge or a little water. Place salt or sugar on a plate and dip/twist the rim of the glass into the salt or sugar.
