As you probably know by now, I am a big fan of fresh produce, which means I’m also a big supporter of my local farmer’s markets. This time of year I tend to have more fresh strawberries than I know what to do with, that’s how I came up with this tasty drink recipe.
With a quart of strawberries in the fridge, I just had to use them before they went bad, right? It really felt like the perfect excuse to make a pitcher of margaritas. This strawberry drink has the perfect balance of flavors, the tartness of the lime really offsets the sweetness from the berries.

I got to work transforming my fresh strawberries so I would have all my ingredients for margaritas. This recipe for margaritas is simple, straight forward, downright delicious and it’s perfect for any occasion!

People Often Ask…
Traditionally margaritas are served with a salted rim, the salt gives a nice contrast to the sweet spiked flavor of the drink. That being said, I have heard of folks using a sugar rimmed cup instead. I think it’s all a matter of personal preference.
I tend to like the sweeter things in life, so my go-to margarita move is to combine salt and sugar on a plate and use both for the rim of my glass. It may not be the proper way to do it, but boy is it delicious!
