Ingredients

For the Margarita

  • 1 pound frozen cut strawberries, thawed slightly (2 1/4 cups)
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 12 fluid ounces frozen limeade concentrate
  • 1 cup sparkling lime mineral water

For the Garnish

  • 1 lime wedge
  • 2 tablespoons margarita salt
  • 6 lime wheels, thinly sliced from the center section of one medium lime
  • 6 large strawberry slices

Instructions

Prepping the Strawberries

  1. Rinse and hull the fresh strawberries.  Set aside the six best strawberries to use as garnishes, then slice the rest into 1/4 inch slices.  Cover the sliced berries and freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Let the frozen sliced strawberries defrost on the counter for 15 minutes.

Making the Margarita

  1. Toss the fresh and frozen strawberries with the sugar until well combined.
  2. Puree the strawberries until smooth.
  3. Pour the puree into a large pitcher, then gently stir in the orange juice, frozen lime concentrate, and the sparkling lime mineral water.

Prepping the Garnishes

  1. Cut one lime into wedges, and the other lime into thin slices.  Choose the best 6 slices and make another small cut so it will sit on the rim of the glass with ease.  Set aside.
  2. Hull the six strawberries with a sharp paring knife.  Do this by cutting a circle around the stem and lifting it out, then discard the hull.  Cut a 1/4-inch slice out of the center of the strawberry.
  3. Pour two tablespoons of margarita salt on a small plate, and smooth it out so it’s evenly distributed.

Assembling the Margarita

  1. Take a lime wedge and run it around the rim of the six margarita glasses.
  2. Turn each glass upside down and swirl the rim into the margarita salt until the rim is evenly coated.
  3. Carefully pour the strawberry margarita into each glass until it is 1/4 inch from the top.
  4. Garnish the rim with a fresh strawberry slice and a lime wheel.  Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Adding crushed ice is optional, but it will dilute the drink.  If you use frozen strawberries and frozen limeade, it won’t be necessary.
