Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

Here’s a tasty little frozen drink recipe that we whipped up this afternoon after a long day at work.  We’ve been having a heat wave here (today the weather has ‘cooled down’ to about 90°) so anything involving ice sounds good to us!  This recipe is a blended, fruitier version of my Margaritas on the Rocks.

Frozen Strawberry Margaritas  (makes 2 drinks)

You will need…
5 cups Ice Cubes
5 oz. Silver Tequila
1.5 oz. Triple Sec
3.5 oz. Lime Juice (I use Nellie & Joe’s Key Lime Juice)
2 oz. Simple Syrup (1/2 part sugar and 1/2 part water that’s been boiled together and cooled)
12-15 Strawberries, leaves removed
Lime, to garnish

Directions:
Place the ice cubes in a blender and blend until the ice is partially chopped.  (My blender has an “ice crush” setting that does a good job of breaking up the ice so I use this setting.)  Add the tequila, triple sec, lime juice, simple syrup and strawberries and blend until the strawberries are completely incorporated.  Pour into a glass and garnish with a lime wedge.  Enjoy!
