Can you believe Cinco de Mayo is only one week away?!? Sayyyy wuuuuuut?!? Ironically, I’ve created my version of a tasty strawberry mint margarita just in time for the occasion. This recipe was created last week on a whim and shared the process through Instagram stories! I had no clue how it would turn out but thank goodness it turned out to be delish!
With a few minor changes from last Thursday (see IG highlight, strawberry margarita, for the action)…
…here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup of fresh strawberries
- 3 tbsp of fresh squeezed lime juice
- 2 tsp of light agave nectar
- 3 tbsp of tequila (Campo Azul is quite delish)
- Mint leaves
- Round slices of strawberries and limes, for garnishing
In a blender, add 1/2 cup of ice, 1 cup of fresh strawberries, 3 tbsp of fresh squeezed lime juice, and 3 mint leaves. Blend until smooth. (This strawberry juice should be enough for ~3 drinks.)
In a mixer, add ice about 3/4 of the way, 3 mint leaves, and 2 teaspoons of light agave nectar. Muddle the ingredients for a few seconds, I use a metal straw for this part. (The ice will melt a bit.) Afterwards, add 7 tablespoons of strawberry juice and 3 tablespoons (aka one shot) of tequila. Seal the mixer and mix the ingredients. (This is enough for one drink.)
Next, prepare a short glass by dipping the rim in lime juice first then tajin. Add a few slices of strawberries and limes inside the glass. Next, add the margarita mix, and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy it as much as the watermelon margarita! If you decide to try it, please share it with me and let me know what you think. If you tag @mrsprofesh on Instagram, that would be amazing and would mean so much to me.
Ps. I literally tried and revised this recipe about five times before I got right! I am dedicated to perfection…and it’s a problem.
