Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

It's almost May! Which means a few things special in MY LIFE:

My birthday! Not so exciting as it's the 5 3 one!

Cinco De Mayo - same day as my birthday!

Fort Lauderdale Air Show - same weekend as my birthday!

Kentucky Derby! Yup, same weekend as the above 3 things!

Uhm ... I am going to need a long vacation after this first weekend in May!

We are having a 'few' people over for all the festivities and 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? ;-)

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, because I always FREEZE them once they sit for a few days to keep them from going to 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 2 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!

  2. I can totally see sipping on one of these at the beach! So excited for summer getting here. These are the perfect way to celebrate. I have never heard of adding balsamic vinegar to a margarita. That's interesting. Happy early birthday! I hope it is fantastic!
