Frozen Strawberry Margaritas

It’s almost May! Which means a few things special in MY LIFE:

My birthday! Not so exciting as it’s the 5 3 one!

Cinco De Mayo – same day as my birthday!

Fort Lauderdale Air Show – same weekend as my birthday!

Kentucky Derby! Yup, same weekend as the above 3 things!

Uhm … I am going to need a long vacation after this first weekend in May!

We are having a ‘few’ people over for all the festivities and you probably already know that I LOVE margaritas … uh huh … but not the heartburn at 2am after a few of the ones using the pre-made margarita mix … Hubby already has the system worked out where he just pulls out the bottle of Prilosec and sets it next to my glass. Pretty pathetic, don’t you think? 😉

I had shared this recipe a while ago and decided to make these again since I am having a few friends over … I mean, heck, I have frozen strawberries, a ton of them, because I always FREEZE them once they sit for a few days to keep them from going to waste! And we still have a lot of tequila in the bar area …  (and I can’t find my favorite bottle … I’m concerned but at least I have 2 bottles of Patron!)  

This makes ONE generous drink … last time, I had a couple and let me just tell you that 1 cup of tequila is a LOT 😉  Take a few Tylenol or Advil with a large glass of water before you go to bed!

1/2 cup tequila
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
juice of half a lime
1/2 tbs triple sec
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/4 cup sparkling water (I grabbed the soda stream to carbonate some water from fridge)
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar (per Nigella … this is a secret ingredient that did make a difference!)
3/4 cup ice

Add all to the blender and let it rip. I’ve got a Vitamix and had no problem with it being too thick but you may need to add a little additional liquid (um, think twice before you add more tequila!)

I was so happy to see these little cocktail umbrellas at the dollar store … 16 for $1 … I’m in!

As always, please drink responsibly and call Uber or have one of your teens drive you if you are out and about …

forward to sharing with some of these
