Frozen Strawberry Margaritas ...

You probably already know that I LOVE margaritas ... uh huh ... but not the heartburn at 2am after a few of the ones using the pre-made margarita mix ... Hubby already has the system worked out where he just pulls out the bottle of Prilosec and sets it next to my glass. Pretty pathetic, don't you think? ;-)

So, that with the fact that I'm trying to eat a little healthier and more whole foods, this was a perfect recipe to give a try ... plus it used the big blender which made me very happy!


This makes ONE generous drink ... I had a couple and let me just tell you that 1 cup of tequila is a LOT ;-)  Was wishing the following morning that Hubby had set out the bottle of Advil too!

1/2 cup tequila
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
juice of half a lime
1/2 tbs triple sec
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/4 cup sparkling water (I grabbed the soda stream to carbonate some water from fridge)
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar (per Nigella ... this is a secret ingredient that did make a difference!)
3/4 cup ice

Add all to the blender and let it rip. I've got a Vitamix and had no problem with it being too thick but you may need to add a little additional liquid (um, think twice before you add more tequila!)

I was so happy to see these little cocktail umbrellas at the dollar store ... 16 for $1 ... I'm in!


As always, please drink responsibly and take a cab or have one of your teens drive you if you are out and about ...

  5. Balsamic vinegar sounds like an interesting addition.. takes the edge off of the sweetness. Thanks for sharing your drink with us on foodie friday.

  6. I'll take one, please! (ok, maybe two!) This looks delicious and refreshing. I have never used balsamic vinegar in a margarita, I am intrigued! I am stopping by from #GetHimFed Friday to let you know that your margarita will be featured tomorrow. Thanks for linking up and hope to see you back this week!
