Key Ingredients to Make Margarita Lemonade

  • STRAWBERRIES – If using fresh strawberries, you will first need to make sure the stems are removed. Frozen or thawed strawberries are also perfectly fine to use in a lemonade margarita.
  • LEMONADE – I used frozen from the store for this recipe. You could also make my homemade version and freeze it!
  • WATER – Used as a mixing agent.
  • TEQUILA – I like to use Reposado or Cuervo Gold.
  • TRIPLE SEC – For the triple sec, I like to use Cointreau. But any brand will work!
  • LIME – Fresh limes are needed for the garnish, plus you’ll need the juice. What’s a margarita without citrus?
  • SALT – Coarse salt for the rims of the glasses is a must for me!

Instructions to Make a Strawberry Lemonade Margarita

BLEND THE INGREDIENTS: First, add the strawberries, lemonade, and water to a large blender and blend.

POUR: Next, pour the blended mixture into a large pitcher.

ADD THE ALCOHOL: Next, stir in the tequila and triple sec. Add the lime juice.

GARNISH & SERVE: Moisten the rim of the glasses and dip into the salt. Fill glasses with ice and pour the margarita into them.

How do I make this strawberry lemonade margarita recipe alcohol-free?

If you want to make this drink nonalcoholic, then I’ve got you covered! Simply replace the tequila and triple sec with 12 ounces of Canada Dry or Club Soda (depending on how sweet you want it to be) and 1/3 cup of fresh orange juice. Voila!

What is the best tequila for margaritas?

Since the tequila is being mixed with sweet ingredients in this margarita lemonade recipe, it doesn’t have to be top-shelf. A nice middle-ground tequila that is both balanced and neutral, but not too cheap, is great for this drink. Again, I swear by Reposado or Cuervo Gold.

What is triple sec?

Triple sec is an orange liqueur, which is a sweetened alcohol with orange flavoring. If you don’t have triple sec, then you can simply use orange juice.

How much alcohol is in a lemonade margarita?

It all depends on how much water you add to the mix. Remember, if using frozen strawberries you’ll increase the water content — the same goes for the lemonade (I’m using frozen so that’s even more water!).

That said, this is precisely why I give ranges for the alcohol on the recipe card. For those that like it a little stronger, use more. I’m a bit of a lightweight and prefer it on the weaker side, but that’s just me.

    Excellent! I used frozen strawberries. Think the juice made it better. Only 1 cup tequila and 1/2 of triple sec. Figured a person can always add more

    I absolutely love this! Question: can this keep until the next day or two? I would love to make this for myself but it is too much. Wish I didn’t have to wait until a party LOL

    • Thank you! Yes, you can store this for a few days in the refrigerator. Just leave out the fruit and add it to your drink before serving. I found storing it too long with the citrus changed the flavor too much.
