Did you know today, February 22 and the 22nd of February every year, is National Margarita Day? Yup 🙂 You can bet that when I found out I went and took a little shopping trip to celebrate! HAHA… but no, seriously I did! It’s one of my favorite drinks, you can have it on the rocks or frozen. It’s also the most common tequila based cocktail in America. The drink comes in many different flavors, the two most common are lime and strawberry.
Follow my easy steps on creating a Strawberry Margarita to celebrate with your friends today!
For a beginner I suggest using a margarita mix you can buy from your local grocery store or liqueur store. You will also need 2 cups of ice, 1 1/2 oz of tequila, 4 oz mix, and 1/2 cup frozen or fresh strawberries. Lime and margarita salt to garnish as well.
You can also buy margarita salt for about $1 at Wal-mart to garnish the rim of your margarita glasses. To do this slice a lime, then take the lime slice and circle the rim of your glass with it until wet, then dip the rim into some of the salt. This adds a nice garnish and flavor to the drink.
Then fill the garnished glasses with your margarita mix and garnish with lime slices and strawberries! Ta-da~ you’re now on your way to being a pro bartender today 😉
After a few of these babies, I am so looking forward to summer time!
If you would rather a more tradition recipe skip the pre-made margarita mix, and use 2 oz triple sec and 2 0z lime juice instead 🙂
