Strawberry Lime Margarita - Makes 1 Drink:

  • 2 oz tequila
  • ½ oz Cointreau
  • ¾ oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 ½ oz Strawberry Simple Syrup
  • To serve: Lime Wedge Strawberries, and Salt for rimming the glass

Instructions

Strawberry Simple Syrup Instructions:

  • To a medium pot, add 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup sliced strawberries, and 2 tsp of the Chile Margarita Seasoning or jalapeño slices (or omit if avoiding spice).
  • Over medium heat, stir together until the sugar dissolves and the strawberries break down and release their juice.
  • Remove from the heat to cool for 5 minutes, and transfer to a blender to purée. Transfer to a glass jar and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Margarita Instructions:

  • To an ice-filled cocktail shaker, add the Tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and the strawberry simple syrup by using a jigger. Shake until chilled.
  • By using a lime wedge, moisten the rim of a glass, and flip the glass upside down and dip it in salt. Add ice to the glass and carefully pour the drink over the ice. Garnish with a fresh strawberry before serving.
