I found this while looking on line for a Cinco de Mayo type dessert. This was delicious...just like a strawberry margarita, yet in dessert form! Prep time equals freezing time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  • 1 14 cups finely crushed pretzels
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 12 cup butter or 12 cup margarine, melted

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 14 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (I used Grand Mariner)
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
  • 1 cup whipping cream


  1. To make crust: Combine pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Press firmly into bottom of 8" spring form pan. Chill.
  2. For filling, combine condensed milk, lime juice, tequila and orange liquor.
  3. Beat until smooth. Add strawberries, beat at low speed until well-blended. Fold in whipping cream. Pour over crust, freeze 4 - 6 hours or until firm. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving.

Made this for my bookclub friends and it was a huge hit. Because the recipe didn't say to whip the whipping cream I didn't, but next time I would. Delicious! KC

The saltiness of the crust was a perfect blend with the creamy strawberry layer. I had it made up in less than 30 kind of dessert, fast and easy!!! Even though this was light, it was I think this could feed 8-10 people easily. I cut the dessert in half and froze the second half for a later date. I left the dessert on the counter for 20 minutes...but it could have been left a bit longer (so you don't have "brain freeze") Really enjoyed this treat....thanks for the posting!!!

I love this dessert! The saltiness of the pretzel crust with the true margarita flavor of the strawberry layer is just perfect! To make a non alcoholic version substitute 1/4 c non alcoholic margarita mix or orange juice in place of the tequila and orange liqueur. This is a great recipe! Thanks for posting!
