I had the best margarita ever when I was visiting my brother in Boston. Shortly after I arrived home, I had a Southern Living magazine that had a mix very similar to the base of the strawberry margarita I had just a little ways from Harvard. Of course, I had to tweak things to make it just the way I like it--I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do. My favorite way to have this is using Cointreau for the orange liqueur and a nice silver tequila. Everyone who has had one of my margaritas generally keeps coming back for more. :)
- 1 lime, juice of
- 1⁄2 navel orange, juice of
- 3 tablespoons orange liqueur (I use Cointreau or Triple Sec)
- 2 tablespoons tequila
- 1⁄3-1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup strawberry (fresh or frozen)
- 1 cup ice
- Process lime juice, orange juice, liqueur, tequila, powdered sugar, strawberries and ice in a blender until slushy. If desired, rub the rims of 2 chilled margarita glasses with a lime wedge and dip the rims in sugar to coat. Serve immediately in prepared glasses.
Very good, used Cointreau also and Cuervo Especial. Made for TexMex Photo Challenge.
I made my neighbor buddy post this recipe before she left for vacation because I would be terribly sad to go a week without one. If you are one of those people who thinks tequila smells like monkey's butt (me too), then you have to try a silver tequila. You can tell the difference just sniffing the cork and it is so smooth going down. It will cost you more but it is worth it. Then you can treat yourself to these fine margaritas. It is hard to stop at one, two, and even three!
