Between Cinco de Mayo and Taco Tuesday, I have been dreaming of frozen margaritas. Strawberry Margaritas to be exact. I don’t mean those syrupy sweet, unnaturally red concoctions you get at the local chain cantina. Nope. I’ve been dreaming of a naturally tart-sweet concoction from my own blender featuring real strawberries and good tequila, blended into a frosty cocktail.
After a rough Monday, and what feels like a very long Tuesday, I figured this afternoon would be the perfect time to have such a delicious cocktail. I had a bag of strawberries in the freezer so that saved me from watering down my drink with ice. Then I started thinking … rhubarb goes beautifully with strawberries, so why not make a Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita?!
Its as amazing as it sounds! A little sweet. A little tart. Frosty and creamy at the same time. Absolutely perfect in every way.
Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita
1/4 cup rhubarb, chopped
1 1/2 cups whole frozen strawberries
2 oz lime juice
1 1/2 oz silver tequila
1/2 oz orange liqueur
2 Tbsp raw honey
In a blender, combine the frozen strawberries, fresh rhubarb, tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and honey. Blend on high for 1 minute, or until everything is combined and smooth. Pour your margarita into your favorite cocktail glass, and enjoy! Serves 1
Of course, if you are entertaining, you can scale this up and make a whole pitcher of strawberry rhubarb margaritas, but my husband’s idea of a cocktail is a glass of bourbon, neat, so I’ll stick to making mine by the individual glass.
