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 AND it qualifies as part of the pantry challenge since I have frozen strawberries in the freezer and way too much tequila on the bar ... 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 ...
