Strawberry Lime Margarita
Welcome to TSRI's Summer Grilling Celebration! It's Ladies Night and tonight we are fixing the most fantastic cocktail to top off the Knock Your Socks Off Tex-Mex Burger that we wrote about yesterday.
I know we have had a few Margaritas in the last month, but I can't help myself. When I discuss cocktails with TSRI's Mixologist and Cocktail Artist, Chad I always have a rather convincing argument when it comes to Margaritas. This week it was only logical to make a margarita to go with the Tex-Mex burger we were featuring. Either way, my drink request and his mouthwatering creation...
I wonder if that is how it always works... "Hey, Michael... Can you paint something on that ceiling for me?" Perhaps inspired creativity does result in masterpieces. It did for Ladies Night.
This fabulous Strawberry Lime Margarita is made with frozen strawberries, lime simple syrup, triple sec and Tequila. It doesn't get much more simple than that. The depth of flavor is amazing! You are going to love it.
Strawberry Lime Margaritas serves 2
12 ounces frozen strawberries
4 ounces Jose Cuervo Tequila Silver
2 ounces Triple Sec
2 ounces lime simple syrup (recipe to follow)
course salt, for rimming your glass
2 lime slices, garnish
Rim 2 margarita glasses with lime slices and course salt.
Combine remaining ingredients in a blender and process until you have a fine consistency. Pour into prepared margarita glass, garnish with lime slices and serve!
Lime Simple Syrup
3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lime zest (about 2 limes)
Combine ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to come to room temperature. Strain zest out of simple syrup and use syrup immediately or transfer syrup to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
