Sliced Limes or StrawberriesFor Garnish, If Desired
Place strawberries, ice cubes, tequila, triple sec, sugar, and lime juice into the blender. Blend until you reach your desired consistency.
Wipe extra lime juice around the rim of glasses. Dip into sugar or salt.
Garnish with lime or strawberry slices if desired.
Pour evenly into glasses and enjoy responsibly!
Strawberries: Fresh or frozen berries work great.
Tequila: Look for tequila that is labeled 100% agave. My favorite brand is Patron. The more expensive brands are lower in alcohol content, so you can use them if you want to add less alcohol to the beverage. A more expensive tequila will also reduce the morning after headache that some people experience after drinking.
Triple Sec: This orange flavor liquor is optional but highly encouraged. Grand Marnier could also be used. If you don't want extra alcohol you could substitute orange juice.
Lime Juice: Use freshly squeezed for the best flavor.
Pro Bartender Tips
This drink can be as thick or thin as you'd like. Add more ice for a thicker slushier drink.
This can be made ahead and stored in the freezer to enjoy whenever you'd like. Alcohol will not freeze completely leading to on-demand adult slushies.
If you don't like salt on your margarita use sugar for a sweet twist.
