Strawberry Margaritas

I’m going to level with you here: this is the first time I’ve used my margaritas glasses for margaritas. I most often use them for fruit and yogurt at brunch. I’m just not a margarita person in general. I’d way rather have rum than tequila but I was determined to serve a delicious tequila cocktail at Disney Dinners: Coco so here we are.

This recipes makes a pitcher of six margaritas. Make it when you can get really good fresh strawberries. Here in Texas, our summer season is long so even in mid-October I was able to get juicy strawberries at the store. It will make a huge difference. Do not make this in the dead of winter when you slice into a strawberry and it’s white. (Shudder.)

Don’t be afraid of the simple syrup in this recipe. It takes minutes to make. You just heat equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk until the sugar granules disappear. That’s it! I like to keep simple syrup in my fridge because it blends so much nicer than sugar. Y’all should have seen my face when I researched margarita recipes and realized how many people blend granulated sugar with strawberries and tequila and a sweetener. That sounds awfully grainy to me! Simple syrup is worth the extra step for a smooth margarita.

To salt the rim, dip glasses in simple syrup, shake off excess, and dip in rimming salt. Without further adieu, here’s how to make strawberry margaritas.
