    What Goes Into This Strawberry Lemonade Margarita

    Strawberries: If using fresh strawberries, first, you will need to make sure the stems are removed. Frozen or thawed strawberries are fine.
    Lemonade: I used frozen lemonade for this recipe.
    Water: Used as a mixing agent!
    Tequila: I like to use Reposado or Gold.
    Triple sec: For triple sec, I like to use Cointreau. Any brand will work!
    Lime: Fresh limes are the garnishments, plus you’ll need the juice. What’s a margarita without citrus?
    Salt: Coarse salt is for the rims of the glasses.

    FAQS

    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.

    What is the best tequila for margaritas?

    Since this tequila is being mixed with sweet ingredients in this recipe, the tequila does not 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.

    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, thn you can use either orange extract or oil.

    Tips

    • Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
    • Serve this alongside my spicy chicken tacos, steak tacos, or fresh peach salsa!
    • Freeze any leftovers into margarita popsicles. First, you’ll need popsicle molds and sticks.

    • 1-1½ cups (236-354ml) Tequila

    Recipe Notes
    1. Fresh strawberries can be replaced with frozen. Your choice whether to defrost them or not. 
    2. I gave ranges for the alcohol for those that like it a little stronger. I’m a weenie and prefer it on the weaker side, but that’s just me. 
    3. Non-Alcoholic version: Simply replace the tequila and triple sec with 12 ounces of Canada Dry or club soda (depending on how sweet you like it) and ⅓ cup fresh orange juice.
