I had shared this recipe a while ago and decided to make these again since I am having a few friends over ... I mean, heck, I have frozen strawberries, a ton of them, after freezing nearly 2 pounds last week to keep from having food waste! And we still have a lot of tequila in the bar area ... (and I can't find my favorite bottle ... I'm concerned but at least I have 3 bottles of Patron!)
This makes ONE generous drink ... last time, I had a couple and let me just tell you that 1 cup of tequila is a LOT ;-) Take a few Tylenol or Advil with a large glass of water before you go to bed!
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 call Uber or have one of your teens drive you if you are out and about ...
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
