Strawberry Orange Margaritas

strawberry orange margarita 1

Have I mentioned how much I love Mexican food?  Like maybe once or a hundred times twice?

And you know what goes great with Mexican food?  Margaritas.

Interestingly enough, I have this thing about tequila.  The “thing” being that I don’t really care for it all that much.  Unless it’s in a frozen strawberry (or other fruit-flavored) margarita.  I can’t do the plain, on-the-rocks thing.  I don’t know, clearly I’m not a real margarita drinker.

But last weekend, I really wanted to be one.  The weather was gorgeous–perfect weather for sitting out on the patio, firing up the old grill, and just relaxing–and since we were having fajitas, margaritas seemed like the next logical step.

I’m nothing if not logical.


Strawberry Orange Margaritas
makes one blenderful
  • 6 ounces tequila
  • 6 ounces sour mix
  • 2 ounces triple sec
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 cup (or s0, just eyeball it) strawberries, washed and hulled
  • ice
  1. In a blender, combine liquids, strawberries, and marmalade, and pulse to combine.
  2. Add ice--about three handfuls, or so--and mix until desired consistency is reached.

Happy Friday–have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

    I’m an on the rocks girl myself but my husband prefers his frozen. These sound great, I would have never thought of using orange marmalade.

      The marmalade really gave it a nice flavor, without watering down the tequila! =)

      You’re so lucky that you have a restaurant like that within walking distance! Then I wouldn’t feel so guilty about all the chips and salsa I eat! =)

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
