This Strawberry Margarita is a perfectly balanced cocktail made with fresh or frozen strawberries, tequila, and a few other easy to find ingredients. Serve it on the rocks or frozen and rimmed (in white or pink). A refreshingly good drink for the warmer days with all your chips and salsa!
In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, keep stirring until sugar has dissolved- about 5-7 minutes. Let it cool.
Pour lime or lemon juice to a plate or shallow bowl. Use water if you do not have juice or use sliced lime to rub the rim of the glass.
In another plate or shallow bowl, add sugar or salt. Set aside.
If making colored sugar, add sugar to a food processor and add desired amount of food coloring. Pulse until blended. Remove and place on a plate .
Shake off any drops of water from the glass, and dip glass upside down into desired garnish. Twist the glass around in the salt or sugar. This will ensure every inch is covered with a thick coating. Tap off any excess sugar. Set aside and proceed with the margarita .
Add chopped strawberry, lime juice, tequila, triple sec, simple syrup and ice to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour into rimmed glasses and serve immediately, garnish with sliced lime and or strawberry.
